Event #3: €5,300 Pot-Limit Omaha

Michele Di Lauro Delivers a Near Fatal Blow to Uspenskiy

Michele Di Lauro

Steve Billirakis raises to 12,000 in early position and Michele Di Lauro calls a few seats to his left. The action folds around to Konstantin Uspenskiy on the button and he three-bets to 57,000 and both players call.

Flop: {7-Clubs} {3-Spades} {2-Diamonds}

Billirakis and Di Lauro check to Uspenskiy who bets pot. Before the dealer can announce how much that is, Billirakis has folded and Di Lauro has moved all-in for 205,000 and Uspenskiy calls.

Uspenskiy{A-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}

Turn: {A-Spades} & River: {8-Diamonds}

Di Lauro has won the pot but nobody is sure if Uspenskiy has been eliminated or not. After a tense few minutes the dealer hand Uspenskiy 28,000 back and he still has a slim chance in this tournament.
