With only 165,000 in front of him, John Dolan made an unusual raise to 120,000 when acting under the gun. He was called by Mick Carlson in the hijack, Adam Richardson on the button and Sebastien Roy in the big blind.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Dolan went all in for his last 45,000. All three of his opponents called and checked the {2-Diamonds} on the turn as well as the {2-Spades} on the river.
