Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em

Romanello Drags a Big Knockout

• Nivå 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Roberto Romanello raised in early position, and Chuc Hoang three-bet him. Romanello responded with a shove, and Hoang called off the rest of his stack to put himself all in.

Showdown
Romanello: {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs}
Hoang: {7-Hearts} {7-Diamonds}

The flop missed Romanello's overcards, but it did give him another four outs as it came {10-Clubs} {4-Spades} {Q-Hearts} to give him the gutterball. The turn was the {2-Spades}, a miss, but the river was just the card Romanello was looking for. The {K-Diamonds} dropped off the deck, giving him top pair and the knockout as he works his stack into the top five. We've got him on about 131,000 now, a good increase from his average chip stack at dinnertime.
