To win as much as to lose during one day

To win as much as to lose during one day

Quite an unusual story happened to the American professional poker player Johnson Juanda who is better known with John nickname. Nowadays he is the member of FullTiltPoker team and shows rather good results in online and offline games.

Once, in 2008 Juanda was playing in a tournament of World poker series with Phil Ivey. Of course, it was rather difficult for John to compete with such an eminent gamer. In spite of the fact that good luck was too close Johnson Juanda couldn't collect Flush-draw combination and had to concede. Such an annoying failure made the player very upset and didn’t allow him to finish the game. At the same time Phil Ivey managed to win the sum of 687 024 American dollars.

In a few hours Johnson decided to sit down at a game table again. That time the fate brought him with Tom Dwan, one more world poker giant. The gamers immediately decided to go all in not to waste their precious time. It meant they could play a game without waiting for the second betting round. The events developed very interestingly further. There were kings in John's hands and Tom Dwan collected aces. Despite the obvious advantage of the opponent, Johnson Juanda managed to win 678 069 dollars. Such an incredible coincidence happened not frequently. John was pleased with that concurrence as he could retrieve the lost money and besides get rather a good prize.
