"Romanello's Bluffs Finally Pay Off"


"I know a good title for this one", Romanello says as we ask him for what happened to Randy Dorfman. "Romanello's Bluffs Finally Pay Off", he smiled as he explained that he had been showing a lot of bluffs throughout the first couple of levels.

Romanello told us how Dorfman raised to 2,100 from the button and he three-bet to 4,600 from the small blind. Alaei gave up his big blind and Dorfman re-popped it to 11,000. Romanello went for the five-bet and made it 22,300 to go. Dorfman called.

The flop was {Q-}{J-}{2-} and Romanello bet 15,000 into Dorfman who pushed all-in for around 48,000 total. Romanello called with pocket aces and was up against pocket treys. Dorfman didn't believe his opponent who, after two blanks, picked up a massive pot. We are now down to just 13 players.
