Level 23 : 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Jason Lavallee raised to 60,000 in middle position, and two players called - Carla Sabini on the button and Sorel Mizzi in the big blind. The dealer fanned , Mizzi checked, and Lavallee examined Mizzi's stack before tossing out a continuation-bet of 78,000. Only Sabini called.
The turn brought a second three - the - and Lavallee checked. Sabini quickly pushed out a small stack of pumpkin T25,000 chips, making it 100,000 to go, and Lavallee called.
The completed the board, Lavallee knuckled again, and Sabini immediately reached for chips. She fired out 160,000 (less than 30% of the pot), and Lavallee chuckled before calling. Sabini showed for a busted gutshot draw, and her fellow countryman tabled for a better queen-high.
