$25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Semi-Shootout

One For Alaei

Daniel Alaei raised to 800 under the gun and got called by Dorfman, who is immediately to his left, and Shawn Buchanan, who was in the small blind.

The flop came down {Q-Spades}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Buchanan check-called the 1,600 continuation bet. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and Buchanan checked again. Alaei quickly threw out 4,100 and his Canadian opponent folded.
