A Much Needed Boost For Buchanan

Shawn Buchanan

It must be tough to be man-handled in this way but Shawn Buchanan is made of strong stuff. He has just managed to get himself three streets of much needed value.

Buchanan bet 25,000 and Michael Mizrachi made the call. The flop was {A-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} and Mizrachi check-called a 25,000 Buchanan bet. On the turn the dealer gave us the {Q-Hearts} and it was a case of deja vu as Mizrachi once again check-called a Buchanan bet; this time for 37,000. The last car was the {9-Clubs} and it was a case of ditto-ditto as Mizrachi check-called a 73,000 Buchanen bet.

"I have the ace," said Buchanan before Mizrachi's hand hit the muck.
