A player in the hijack opens to 525 and WPT Champions Club member John Phan reraises to 2,000 out of the small blind. After some deliberation, the initial raiser calls and they go heads-up to a flop of [7c6d5c].
Phan silently bets 4,000 and his opponent thinks a bit before calling. The turnbrings the [4s], putting a four-liner to a straight on the board. Phan is undeterred, and bets 11,000.
The other player, who only has around 15,000 chips left, thinks for quite a while before folding, giving Phan the pot.
John Phan – 45,000
