Chip and a Chair for Di Giacomo

zedmaster84 • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Roman Herold raised the button and instantly called the shove of Claudio Di Giacomo in the big blind.

Roman Herold: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Claudio Di Giacomo: {j-Spades}{8-Spades}

Herold flopped middle set while Di Giacomo had a gutshot straight flush draw on the {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Spades} flop. Nothing changed on the {4-Diamonds} turn and {q-Hearts} river to let Herold.

Di Giacomo was down to 3,000 and forced all-in the next hand out of the small blind. Herold raised to 25,000 from the cutoff and was called by Boris Kuzmanovic on the button and Giuseppe Zarbo in the big blind. The active players checked down the {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} board.

Di Giacomo tabled {k-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and survived, as Zarbo won the bigger side pot with {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs} against the {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} of Herold and the {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} of Kuzmanovic.
