Alan Strikes Back

Alan Escano

Pre-flop, Li You Nan made a raise to 650 and the Filipino Poker Tour's Alan Escano made the call.

Flop: {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

When the first three cards came out, Alan checked over to Li, who made a bet of about 1,500. Alan made the call.

It was the same story on the turn as the {5-Diamonds} was met with a check-bet-call sequence between the two.

On the river {7-Clubs}, Alan went for it all by shoving his stack in after Li had bet 15,000.

Li then went into an extended tanking session, agonizing over whether to call or not as a large crowd gathered around the table. Finally, he made the fold, sending the huge pot Alan's way.

He is now at about 65,000.
