Season VII Legends Champ John "The Razor" Phan Eliminated
Level 2: 75-150, ante
After a flop of 553, John Phan checks the small blind, the big blind bets 1,500, and Phan moves all in. His opponent asks for a count, but then calls when he sees that Phan doesn't have a lot of chips left. (Phan's all in wasn't counted, but it looked to be in the range of 5,000 or so.)
Phan shows K3 for two pair, fives and threes, but the big blind turns over 88 for a higher two pair (eights and fives). Phan needs a king, a three, running clubs, or running fives to stay alive.
The turn card is the 10, the river card is the A, and the big blind wins the pot with his pocket eights. John Phan, who won this tournament two years ago in Season VII, is eliminated.
