Alan Wins the Raising War

Alan Escano

Pre-flop, Alan Escano raised to 525 from early position and the hijack decided to re-raise it to 1,725.

Action was folded all the way back to Alan, who then decided to ante it up to a total of 4,050. That wasn't enough for the other player, as he responded by going all-in! It was a quick call from Alan and the cards were tabled:

Alan: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}
Opponent: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}

Alan had woken up with pocket rockets and they held up on the board of {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Hearts}, giving his stack a big boost to about 45,000 and eliminating another player from Day 1A.
