Sirens Warming Up

2008 APPT Manila champion Van Marcus is quietly working his way through this field nicely. He's now chipped up to around 70,000 after running an apparent bluff against Dane Lomas.

On a flop of {7-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} Lomas checked and then called the 5,500-chip bet from Marcus, before the {K-Diamonds} landed on the turn.

Both players checked and the free card on the river was the {8-Hearts}. Lomas came out swinging with a bet of 6,500 before Marcus quickly raised it up an additional 15,500 to force a fold from his opponent. Marcus flashed a seemingly unhelpful {6-Clubs} and raked in the pot.
