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 and Streletskiy continued for 65,000. Call. The turn and river were checked through and Streletskiy opened . It was no good though as Romanello tabled .
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.
