Butch Dalisay has won a number of awards for fiction, nonfiction, drama and screenplay for his writing. He might as well write about this next hand.
Preflop, Dalisay went all-in for his final 22,000. Little did he know however, that the man from the small blind, Rommel Amiscaray, was holding pocket rockets. Of course, the latter made the call and we have a showdown.
Dalisay flipped over a dominated 5♠ 5♥
The flop 3♦ 6♠ 9♦ did not change anything but the turn 5♣ completed the set for Dalisay and the river 7♠ officially gave him the double-up.
Dalisay survives and is now up to over 45,000 chips. And oh, with around 16 Palanca awards as well.
