It's All Over for Ottaviani


Giuseppe Ottaviani came into the day ranking fourth in chip counts, but didn't manage to survive until the end of the day and will go home with only 16,000 euros is his pocket.

Ottaviani lost his final hand of the tournament to Amerigo Santoro, who raised to 30,000 pre-flop from the hijack seat and Ottaviani shoved for around 500,000 from the big blind. Santoro snap-called and opened {Q-Spades} {Q-Hearts}. Ottaviani looked disappointed as he flipped {A-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds}.

The dealer opened {10-Clubs} {7-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {5-Spades} {J-Spades} and Santoro's pair of queens was good for the win. Ottaviani was eliminated from the tournament while Santoro gave his stack a nice addition of half a million chips.
