Jordanou Busts, Smith Hammers Romanello Down


We just caught a monster hand which turned into Jordanou's last. Elliot Smith raised to 3,200 under the gun after which Roberto Romanello three-bet to 9,000 from the cut-off. Billy Jordanou pushed all-in for his last 10,600 and the action got folded back to Smith. Smith made it 22,000 and Romanello called giving us some serious side pot action.

The flop came down {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Smith bet 5,500. Romanello decided to put his opponent all-in for a total of 43,000 and Smith made the call.

Billy Jordanou{A-Spades}{J-Spades}
Roberto Romanello{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Elliot Smith{K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

The turn was the {K-Spades} and the river the {A-Hearts} giving Smith a monster pot. Romanello is knocked down but still alive as we say goodbye to Billy Jordanou. Only two more knock outs at this table before the final table is reached.
