Castelluccio Continues To Collect


Ever since Sergio Castelluccio crossed the 300,000-chip mark earlier today, he's managed to maintain his big stack while frequently remaining active.

Just now he was involved again in a hand that saw him and a single opponent reach an {8-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop after having together built a pot of about 9,000. The action checked to him, Castelluccio bet 3,600 and his opponent called.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} and checks from both players, then the {3-Diamonds} earned another check from Castelluccio's opponent. He then fired 7,400 into the middle and after considering the situation for nearly a minute his opponent called.

Castelluccio turned over his hand — {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs} — and his eights and queens beat his opponent's {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds} to earn him yet another pot.
