Alex Foxen
The dealer introduces himself to Alex Foxen’s dog, Riley.

After a flop of Kh3h4d, Alex Foxen checked the small blind, and Mike Shanahan moved all in from middle position. The next two players folded, and Foxen called all in for 61,500 with Kc4c for top two pair.

Shanahan turned over Jh9h for a heart flush draw, and Foxen needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the Kd, the river card was the 4h, and Foxen turned a full house, kings full of fours, to clinch the pot and double up in chips.

Alex Foxen  –  170,000  (170 bb)
