Leonzio Crippled

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

It folded around to Marcin Horecki in the small blind who went all in. Marco Leonzio quickly called in the big blind, and they were on their backs.

Horecki: {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Leonzio: {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

Board: {6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

"Yessss!" said Horecki as he doubled to 3.65 million. Leonzio dropped to just 140,000, and folded his small blind the next hand as well, meaning that he had just 70,000 when he called all in fromt he button the following hand. Peter Skripka limped in the small blind but folded when Roberto Romanello in the big blind raised. On their backs, gentlemen.

Leonzio: {q-Spades}{3-Spades}
Romanello: {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

Board: a very exciting {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Leonzio tripled up, but he is still in some serious trouble on just a couple big blinds.

Skripka Fills Up, Fails to Get Paid

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Peter Skripka limped in the small blind and Roberto Romanello checked the big to see an {a-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop which they both checked; an unpromising start. Skripka checked the {8-Hearts} turn as well and this time Romanello bet minimum - but Skripka now raised to 375,000. Romanello made the call.

Skripka checked again on the {7-Diamonds} river and Romanello checked behind - then chuckled when Skripka turned over {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for a sneakily played full house.

Skripka - 4.2 million
Romanello - 6 million

Preflop Poker

YorkshirePud • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

There have been no flops seen for the past few orbits, which does not make interesting reading for you reading this.

There have been a couple of all in bets, the first came from Peter Skripka when Marco Leonzio raised to 350,000 from the small blind but he didn't want to play for stacks and the second was Marcin Horecki's second open-shove in as many oribits, but again no callers.

As danafish mentioned, the escalating blinds and the fact the chips simply are not moving could turn this into a contest of who runs best at coinflips.

Incidently, if the five remaining players decided to chop the remaining prizepool equally between them, each would receive €323,000. I'd take that!

Virtually Flopless

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Action has become somewhat slow of late - the level of aggression remains high, but nobody seems to want to make a call that would endanger their position.

Most recently Marcin Horecki open-shoved from the button for 1.495 million. Everyone folded and he took the pot.

The average stack is at 34 big blinds or so right now - if we still have five players in at the start of the next level, we could be in for a shove-fest...

Leonzio Continues To Lose Ground

YorkshirePud • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Marco Leonzio has said if he wins the Main Event then he will consider quitting his day job in real estate and become a professional poker player, but if he carries on bleeding chips at this rate he dream will stay just that.

Emilliano Bono raised int he cutoff to 225,000 and only Leonzion, in the small blind, made the call. Both players checked the {7-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop but when the {8-Diamonds} came on the turn, Leonzio checked then insta-called Bono's 350,000 bet. Once again Leonzio checked when the {5-Clubs} made an appearance on the river and folded when Bono bet 600,000.

Leonzio really needs to stop calling raises out of position and check-folding, otherwise he stands no chance of victory here in Prague

That Wasn't In Leonzio's Skripka

YorkshirePud • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Peter Skripka has played pretty aggressively since the final table began and he is still one of the few players who seems like he is prepared to play poker, rather than simply sit and fold hand after hand.

Everyone folded to Marco Leonzio in the small blind and he opted to limp in. However, Skripka was not in the mood for letting his opponent see the flop cheaply and made it 250,000 to play, a bet Leonzio called.

The {3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} flop saw both players check and when the {a-Clubs} peeled off on the turn Leonzio check-called a 250,000 bet from Skripka. The action was similar when the {j-Hearts} appeared on the river, though this time Leonzio checked when Skripka made a more substantial bet of 750,000.

Romanello Will Still Not Be Bluffed

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

It folded around to Peter Skripka in the small blind, who limped in. Roberto Romanello in the big blind gave him a look, and then checked.

Skripka bet out a minimum 100,000 on the {k-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{q-Hearts} flop and Romanello called; they both checked the {8-Hearts} turn. Skripka bet another 150,000 on the {k-Hearts} river but Romanello called that too and Skripka just tapped the table and threw his cards back to the dealer. "Why do people bluff the Romanello?" Mr. Romanello wondered as he picked up the pot. He showed the {7-Hearts} for fun, but declined to show the other card.

Romanello Not Nice to Bono

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Roberto Romanello opened for 315,000 under the gun and Emilliano Bono called. But Romanello fired out another 430,000 on the {7-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, and following a bit of a dwell, Bono announced, "Nice," and folded.

Slight Delay In Proceedings

YorkshirePud • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

All tournaments have been paused whilst Thomas Kremser and his team wish everyone a happy Christmas and give a few awards to some of their staff, to the tune of "Last Christmas" by Wham!

The cards are back in the air and normal service has been resumed
