Gabriel Hits the River for a Double Up


Although all ins are not that uncommon here on Day 5 of the EPT Sanremo Main Event, "all-in and call" is, however, not a frequent occurrence. However, that is exactly what happened when Thomas Gabriel shoved from the cutoff seat for 219,000 and Negjdel Avdylaj reraised all in for around 1,600,000. The rest of the table folded and the two went for a showdown.

Gabriel: {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}
Avdylaj: {A-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds}

The flop went {7-Spades} {4-Spades} {9-Clubs} and both players missed. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn made it look like there's going to be no winner in this one, but things turned all the way around as the dealer flipped the {Q-Hearts} on the river pairing Gabriel's queen and giving him a double up.

Chip Counts
Negjdet Avdylaj kv 1,400,000 -302,000
Thomas Gabriel us 444,000 102,000
