Tan Amassing Chips

Ivan Tan
Ivan Tan has been accumulating chips very quietly today. His current chip count is approximately 24,000, and that's after taking a small hit in a three-way pot with Casey Kastle and one other player. On a flop of {8-Spades} {2-Spades} {3-Diamonds}, Tan bet 1,625. Only the button called. When the turn was another baby, the {5-Diamonds}, Tan bet 1,625 again. Again the button called.

The river was the {7-Clubs}, bringing quick checks from both players. Tan turned over {A-Spades} {Q-Spades} for a busted flush draw, a busted straight draw and two overcards that missed. His opponent showed {10-Hearts} {8-Hearts} for top pair and scooped the pot.
