Di Lauro Takes Big One From Jelassi


After a slow start the players at the final table kicked it into a higher gear giving us plenty of action to describe. We just caught the action on the flop between Jelassi and Di Lauro. The flop read {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Di Lauro check-called a 22,000 bet from Jelassi.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Di Lauro checked-called again. This time the bet was 40,000 and the river brought out the {6-Diamonds}. For the third straight time the Italian checked to Jelassi who fired out 70,000. Di Lauro gave it some thought and finally called.

Jelassi showed {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Spades} for trips but his cards got mucked as soon as Di Lauro turned over {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Di Lauro mumbled something about a check-raise spot but we it wasn't clear on which street he had this plan. Jelassi give something to the Italian evening out the chips even more.

Chips Count
Michele Di Lauro it 695,000 115,000
Ramzi Jelassi se 600,000 -150,000
