Lavallee Versus Murariu

Webjoker • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
Jason Lavallee

We had seen Jason Lavallee before today, but hadn't written down any big hands of him yet. Lavallee, who finished runner up to Ludovic Lacay here in Sanremo in October 2012, won a serious pot just now from next door neighbor Dan Murariu.

Lavallee opened the hijack to 1,200, and Murariu three-bet to 2,800 from the cutoff. Max Greenwood on the button folded and both blinds did the same. Lavallee made the call though and he saw a flop in this three betted pot.


Lavallee checked to his Romanian opponent. Murariu carefully tabbed the table and they were off to the turn; {7-Spades}. Lavallee was done checking and bet out 3,400. Murariu didn't waste much time and tossed in a blue 5,000 chip to call.

After receiving change, the dealer put the {5-Hearts} on the table. Lavallee contemplated his options, and then announced all in for 14,550. Murariu wasn't too happy about it, and folded his hand after about fifteen seconds of thinking.
