Alafogiannis Strikes Drover Again


Mark Drover just can not shake Nikolaos Alafogiannis. About an orbit or so after Alafogiannis cracked his aces with queen-seven, the two men tangled again. The pot opened with Alafogiannis shoving in for 212,000, and Mark Drover flatted in the small blind. From the big, Byron Kaverman squeezed in a reraise to 396,000 total, but Drover wasn't going anywhere. He moved all in, and Kaverman was forced to cut his losses and duck out of the way. Alafogiannis was at risk again, and once again, he was in trouble.

Alafogiannis: {A-Spades} {6-Spades}
Drover: {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades}

And once again, Alafogiannis would get there. The board ran {2-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} {10-Spades}, and that was that. Sixes up give Alafogiannis another triple up and then some, and he's gone from 72,000 to about 690,000 during the first half of this level.
