Di Donato Takes Two

[user249920] • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante

According to Greg Merson, he opened the pot for a raise and was called by Ray Di Donato before a player in the blinds three-bet. Merson four-bet, and all three players ended up getting all in.

Merson: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Di Donato: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Third Player: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

The board ran out {8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Spades}{a-Diamonds}, giving Di Donato aces up on the river to take the pot.

The next hand, Di Donato flatted a raise with {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. He checked back an {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop before calling bets on the {a-Diamonds} turn and {a-Hearts} river, taking the pot against his opponent's {a-}{k-}{x-}{x-}.
