With about 15,000 in the pot and a board reading , Luca Pagano checked and watched Johnny Lodden bet 8,800. "How much do you have left," Pagano asked.
"18,00," came the reply. Pagano then put out a stack of blue T5,000 chips for a big check-raise. Lodden quickly committed and the cards were turned up.
Pagano had picked a bad spot as Lodden held the nuts. Pagano needed a seven on the river just to chop, but unfortunately for him, it wasn't in the cards and he watched a big portion of his stack shipped to Lodden.
