John Phan gets the last of his short stack all-in preflop and gets four callers, including Steve "Chainsaw" Dempsey and Michael Binger, who only has 3,475 chips behind.
Everyone checks the board down as it runs out [5d5s3s5h3h], putting a full house on board. No one has a pocket pair, so the pot is split up five ways and Phan lives to see another hand.
Just a few hands later, Phan calls a raise preflop in a multi-way pot, leaving just 2,075 behind. The flop falls [QhJd4s] and action checks to Phan, who moves all-in. Dempsey calls and action folds to Adam "Roothlus" Levy, who moves all-in for 11,750 more.
Dempsey folds and Phan shows [KhJs] for a pair of jacks, while Levy tables [Ks10c] for the open-ended straight draw. The turn brings the [6d] and the river [5c] and Phan more than triples up. After the hand, Levy had this to say over Twitter:
@Roothlus: John Phan is an unbustable bounty. He’s been all in 3 times and faded them each time.
John Phan – 10,000
Adam "Roothlus" Levy – 11,750
