Pezzaniti Eliminates Astapau

Mateusz_Pater • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Anton Astapau raised to 12,000 from under the gun before Frank Pezzaniti bumped it up to 25,000 from the small blind. Astapau called and both players watched the flop come down {3-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Both players checked before the {6-Diamonds} dropped on the turn. Pezzaniti immediately slid out a stack of 5,000-chips totalling a 100,000 bet and Astapau followed moving all in for 131,000. Pezzaniti snap-called.

Pezzaniti: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Astapau: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Pezzaniti had flopped the nut flush and had Astapau drawing to the case ace. That wouldn't come as the {k-Clubs} completed the board sending the Belarusian pro to the rail just before third break of the day.
