Australia's Michael Kanaan and Hong Kong based Aussie David Steicke have both had plenty of success across Australasia and are both looking to add to their resumes here in Cebu. Right now they sit at the same table and both have fairly healthy stacks.
We recently caught a hand between the two players whereby the action started with Steicke opening it up to 5,600. Kanaan made the call from the big blind and the two players watched as three cards were spread across the felt.
On the flop, Kanaan checked and Steicke threw out 5,600. This is when Kanaan put in the check-raise to 14,000. It was enough to quickly send Steicke's cards into the muck.
