Hand #47 - Fred Goldberg raises to 50,000 from early position and John Dolan defends his big blind. The flop comes K94 and Dolan checks. Goldberg bets 57,000 and Dolan takes his time before check-raising to 143,000.
Goldberg quickly announces he is all-in, having Dolan's remaining 570,000 or so covered. Dolan calls and tables AA for an overpair of aces. Goldberg holds A9 for middle pair and the nut flush draw.
The 6 on the turn is a safe card for Dolan and, with the A on the river, he takes the pot to double up to second in chips. Goldberg is now the short stack at the table.
John Dolan - 1,550,000 (78 BBs)
Fred Goldberg - 205,000 (10 BBs)
