On Fire!

Tony Albano

Just a hand or two removed from the one we last reported, Antonio "Tonypet" Albano has just sent out another player to the rail.

Pre-flop, after a raise from Tony in the small blind, Mike Takayama decided to shove his stack in from the big blind. Tony made the snap-call and the cards were tabled:

Tony: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Mike {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

The crowd of onlookers erupted as the flop came {10-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{4-Spades}, giving Mike the pair of aces but pretty giving Tony a stranglehold with the set of tens!

Only runner-runner would save Mike now but the turn and river blanked out for him, sending him out in 20th place for US $5,500.

Tony is now at about 405,000 in chips.
