Romanello Up, Gulyy Out in the Cold


Roberto Romanello is on the up today after beating Konstantin Streletskiy in a pot. He raised to 20,000 from under the gun and called with his Lithuanian opponent three-bet to 60,000 from the small blind.

The flop fell {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} and Streletskiy continued for 65,000. Call. The {4-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} turn and river were checked through and Streletskiy opened {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}. It was no good though as Romanello tabled {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

As this hand was happening Yuri Gully was being eliminated on the neighbouring table. He ran pocket queens into the pocket aces of Ugnius Simelionis. Ouch.
