Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Bedell Pays Off Maisto

Tom Bedell started the day as one of the top ten highest chip stacks but he has just had a setback against European tournament regular Giacomo Maisto. Maisto raised from under the gun and both Bedell (button) and Matt Waxman (BB) called. Our first three cards on the felt were {J-Spades} {5-Diamonds} {4-Hearts}, Waxman checked, Maisto bet 11,000, Bedell called and Waxman folded. The turn was the {5-Hearts} and Maisto checked to Bedell, who saw a chink of light, and bet 16,000. Maisto made a quick turn call before heading to the river. The card was the {A-Spades} and Maisto fired out a 25,000 bet quicker than bullets fly out of Arnie's uzi-nine millimetre!

Bedell hated the bet more than I hate sprouts! He sat back, put his hand on his head and let out an exasperated sigh, "I have to call," said Bedell.

Maisto flipped over {J-Hearts} {J-Clubs} and Bedell tapped the felt in recognition before mucking his hand.
