Polito Hits That Old Dusty Trail

Say Goodbye to Laurent Polito

Laurent Polito, who recently won the €10,000 High Roller at the 2012 EPT Barcelona, moved his short stack all in from under the gun. It folded all of the way around the table to Negjdet Avdylaj in the small blind. He announced a call and the big blind folded, prompting the two to table their hands.

Avdylaj: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Polito: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Avdylaj struck gold when the flop of {2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades} paired his queen and put him in the lead. Fourth street was the {5-Clubs} and fifth street was the {2-Spades}, ensuring that Avdylaj would reduce the field by one player. He's now sitting on a stack of about 1.4 million.
