In between the flopless pots (which are traded off fairly evenly) the first period of the heads up have gone mainly to Emilliano Bono.
Bono raised on the button to 380k and Romanello called. They checked all the way down until the river spelled . Romanello checked a final time and Bono won the pot with a 450k bet.
Next time he was on the button, Romanello called his preflop raise (370k) again, but got no further than a flop which Bono bet to the tune of 450k when it was checked to him.
Finally, Roberto limped his button, and Bono checked. No bet on the flop, but the turn was more interesting: Bono checked, Romanello bet 175k and Bono raised to 420k. Romanello passed after the briefest of consideration.
