Before the color-up break, Chen Xiaochun opened the action to 3,500. It folded to the player in the cutoff who three-bet to 7,000. John Aguirre then four-bet to 31,000 from the button.
Rocco Iati was next to act in the small blind, and when it was his action he tanked for a while before five-bet shoving all-in for 36,000.
Xiaochun, the original raiser, cold-called the five-bet jam. The player in the cutoff folded. Aguirre also called the all-in bet of Iati.
There would still be side action between Xiaochun and Aguirre to come.
The flop came: . Xiaochun was first to act and he bet 30,000. Aguirre then moved all-in for 99,000.
Having Aguirre covered, Xiachun then went into the tank. After several minutes the clock was called on Xiachun.
He finally made the call.
All players had an overpair to the board with Iati's pocket kings way ahead.
The board completed with the on the turn and the on the river. Iati tripled up and Xiaochun scooped the side pot to eliminate Aguirre.
