The action folds to Larry Trimble in middle position, and he sits frozen for a full minute, long enough for his tablemates to roll their eyes as they wait for Trimble to act. Finally, Trimble slowly cuts out chips and raises to 25,000. The action folds to Johnny Johnson, who quickly announces all-in for 79,000 total.
When the action gets back to Trimble, he snap-calls.
Trimble - A♠A♦
Johnson - Q♠Q♥
It's the cooler every poker player dreads at this stage of a tournament, and Johnson offers a succinct, "Nice hand," when he sees what he's up against.
The board brings no help when it runs out 6♥6♣5♥5♣2♣, and Johnson hits the rail in 24th place. For his performance in the Main Event, Johnson will take home $893.
