Top 10 Poker Players - Johnny Chan

johnny chan

     Johnny Chan (born in Guangzhou, China in 1957), now living in Las Vegas is a professional poker player with great performances. He was one of the first asian poker players that confirmed in the USA. He began to be famous at the end of the 80`s when he has won the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event of for two years in a row (1987 and 1988). He was close to win his third consecutive WSOP Main Event but he was defeated at heads-up by Phil Hellmuth. Images with him at the final table of the WSOP from 1988 were integrated in the movie Rounders (1998).

 
     He is famous for his habit to bring at the poker tables where he plays, a lucky orange. After he has won his second WSOP title, other players began bringing “lucky” fruits to the table in hope to increasing their luck. He says that the orange is not for him like a totem, he just bring at the tables the orange for it`s scent, because in the past he was a smoker and now the smoke bothers him. He currently doesn`t smoke anymore and he doesn`t drink.


      In 2005 he was the first poker player to win 10 WSOP events. Now he is tied with Doyle Brunson and behind Phil Hellmuth that has won 11 WSOP events. He was inducted in the Poker Hall of Fame in 2002.
