Romanello's Day is Done

[user153638]
Roberto Romanello on Day 3.

We just lost one of the more recognizable names in the field just now as Imed Mahmoud sent Roberto Romanello to the rail.

It happened when action folded around to Romanello in the cutoff and he moved all in. Imed Mahmoud made the call from the small blind, and after the big folded, Romanello said, "I'm not slow rolling, I only looked at one." He then flashed the {A-Diamonds} and indicated he wanted Mahmoud to show. The latter was having none of it and refused to show his hand.

After some prompting from the floor, Romanello squeezed out his other card, the {8-Clubs}, and then Mahmoud tabled {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. It was a flip.

The {K-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop wasn't particularly interesting, and neither was the {5-Spades} turn as no player held a spade. The dealer burned one final time and put down the {9-Spades}, the last card Romanello would see in the EPT9 Sanremo Main Event.
