Di Giacomo Doubles Andrian; Busts to Grieco

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Claudio Di Giacomo

The cards were already on their backs as a flip between two Italians unfolded with Simone Andrian at risk for 21 blinds. He was up against Claudio Di Giacomo who held the slightly superior stack.

Simone Andrian: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Claudio Di Giacomo: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop gave Andrian trips queens and he locked up the double with the {k-Diamonds} turn, rendering the {8-Hearts} river to a formality as Andrian doubled for 211,000.

Di Giacomo was down to 91,000 and got those in the very next hand, facing yet another Italian in showdown in Nicola Grieco.

Claudio Di Giacomo: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}
Nicola Grieco: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Both had a piece of it on the {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Spades} flop with top pair and nut flush draw versus middle set. The {j-Diamonds} turn gave Di Giacomo even more outs but he missed them all on the {6-Clubs} river.
