Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Romanello Rolling on the River

• Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Roberto Romanello

Roberto Romanello raised from the cutoff to 4,800 and Thomas Harry Jr. called in the big blind. The dealer delivered a {7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{q-Hearts} flop and Harry Jr. open shoved all in. Romanello quickly made the call putting Harry Jr. at risk.

Romanello: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}
Harry Jr. {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

Romanello was behind until the dealer laid out the {j-Hearts} on the turn. Romanello had paired his jack and the {8-Hearts} hit on the river. Harry Jr. had thought he hit two pair and Romanello kindly informed him that he had made a straight with the eight and Harry Jr. exited in 97th place.
