Simoes Leads the Pack; Grieco Busts Zerbib

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Nicola Grieco

There was a ton of action over on table one and it resulted in two eliminations.

First up, it was Marcelo Simoes who raised to 18,000 on the button and Julien Veyssiere three-bet to 59,000 in the small blind. Simoes then four-bet jammed for 380,000 effective and Veyssiere studied the tournament clock to see if there was a pay jump or not before calling it off.

Julien Veyssiere: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Marcelo Simoes: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} board knocked out Veyssiere as Simoes leaped into the lead by some margin.

Soon after, Nicola Grieco raised the button and Jerome Zerbib defended the big blind. They got it in after a {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop via check-raise to 100,000, push and call with Zerbib at risk for around 285,000.

Jerome Zerbib: {q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Nicola Grieco: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

The {7-Hearts} turn and {a-Hearts} river let Grieco celebrated and he then pointed to the ace of clubs and said "this was important" as he held the nut flush blocker. Both stacks were counted and Grieco had the covering stack to score the knockout.
