Survival for van Alphen


Jesse Sylvia raised from middle position, and when it folded back around to Niels van Alphen in the blinds he pushed all in for about 235,000 total. Sylvia instantly called, turning over {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} while van Alphen showed {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop came {2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}, putting van Alphen in the lead. The turn was the {10-Diamonds} and river the {5-Spades}, and van Alphen survives, though still sits with one of the shorter stacks.
