Million Chip Pot For Billirakis!

[user20283]

In the first hand of heads-up play we saw one of the biggest pots of the tournament. Di Lauro raised to 46,000 to start things off and Billirakis made the call. The flop came down {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and both players checked.

The turn was the {2-Hearts} and Billirakis lead out for 65,000, Di Michele made the call. On the river the {9-Spades} appeared and Billirakis grabbed chips again. The American pro bet out 175,000 putting a lot of pressure on his opponent. Di Lauro wasn't scared and pushed out two huge stacks of black 5,000 chips making it 400,000. Billirakis called instantly.

Steve Billirakis{A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

Di Michele had turned a full house but on the river Billirakis managed to hit a bigger boat. Billirakis takes a big chip lead while Di Lauro looks very shaking up by this loss.
