Van Alphen Takes Some From Malherbe


Jean Malherbe raised to 80,000 from under the gun plus one, and Niels van Alphen three-bet to 200,000. The action was folded back to Malherbe, and he called.

The flop came down {K-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, and both players checked.

The turn was the {5-Clubs}, and Malherbe lead out for 150,000. Van Alphen called quickly, and the river was the {J-Spades}. The Belgian bet 355,000, and Van Alphen called after about ten seconds.

Malherbe showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, but that was no good against Van Alphen's {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}. The Dutchman started the day with just 14 big blinds and is now back up to well over average.
