Alafogiannis Active From the Blinds

From early position, Anthony Gregg raised to 51,000. Nikolaos Alafogiannis called from the big blind to see the flop come down {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Alafogiannis shoved all in for approximately 300,000 and Gregg quickly folded, claiming to have the "worst two pair possible."

On the next hand, Xuan Liu raised to 50,000 from early position and action folded to Alafogiannis in the small blind. He tanked for a couple minutes before Daniel Shiff in the big blind asked if Alafogiannis knew the action was on him. Alafogiannis didn't and was surprised. He checked his hand and then went to raise to 53,000. Of course, Liu had already made a raise to 50,000, so Alafogiannis was ruled to just call. Shiff then called as well.

The flop came down {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{J-Spades} and Alafogiannis bet 83,000. After Shiff folded, Liu raised all in. Alafogiannis folded and showed the {J-Hearts} from his hand and Liu scooped the pot.
