Alioto Stays Alive

Dario Alioto

Action folded to Dario Alioto in middle position and he raised to 3,200. The button made the call, as did Erick Lindgren in the big blind, and it was three-way action to the {K-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{7-Spades} flop.

After Lindgren checked, Alioto bet 9,000 only to have the button raise the pot. Lindgren quickly got out of the way and Alioto instantly called off his stack.

Alioto: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}
Button: {2-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Alioto held top two pair, but his opponent held both low and flush draws. The {5-Diamonds} turn gave the button the low, and also provided him with a plethora of outs to scoop the pot. Unfortunately for him, and much to Alioto's delight, the {A-Hearts} peeled off on the river for a chopped pot.

"How do I miss that river?" the button said lightheartedly.
