Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Filippo Flips Over Eights, Takes a Few from Galfond


Three players -- Eric Capra, Phil Galfond, and Filippo Candio -- had made it to the turn with the board showing {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. Capra checked, Galfond bet 57,000 into a pot about twice that size, Candio called, and Capra folded.

The river brought the {2-Spades}. This time Galfond bet 126,000, and with a look of resignation Candio made the call. Candio tabled {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, and his set of eights was best as Galfond mucked.

Candio has 860,000 at present, while Galfond has about 1.74 million.
