Davis Aalvik Dominating the Table
In two consecutive hands Davis Aalvik has sent a pair of players to the rail.
First, Aalvik is faced with a big reraise all in from an opponent holding 70,000 or so. That player had just lost a big hand to Kevin Saul, and his aggressive play at the pot came shortly after he was forced to fold away a decent chunk of his stack.

Immediately after that win Aalvik plays to the turn on a board reading . One player shoves all in for 60,500 and Aalvik huffs up his chest with a deep breath before committing the calling chips. Aalvik reveals for top pair and his opponent holds a second-best . The river bricks off, coming , and with that Aalvik surges toward the top of the leaderboard.
