Isaia Gets There Again

• Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante

Buchman: (x)(x) / {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} / (x)
Isaia: (x)(x) / {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs} / (x)

Eric Buchman brought in, and Alessio Isaia completed. Buchman called, and proceeded to bet on fourth, fifth, and sixth streets, with Isaia check calling all three times. On seventh, Isaia checked raised after Buchman bet, and Buchman had a decision to make. Buchman called, and for the second time at the final table, Isaia got there on the river against Buchman in a big pot as he showed {5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{8-Hearts} in the hole for a wheel.

Buchman shook his head in disgust, announced he had trip queens. He went on to say "He thinks he played it great but he just ran me down." Isaia seized the chip lead with that hand, jumping up to 900,000.
