zedmaster84 • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Domenico Gala

Domenico Gala raised to 130,000 from the button and Ivan Luca called out of the big blind. The flop came {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades} saw Luca check-raise from 110,000 to 300,000 and Gala called. After the {3-Spades} turn, Luca bet 535,000 and Gala called.

The {9-Clubs} river saw a pot of 2 million chips already and Gala had 1 million behind and was put all in. The Italian tried some table talk and all of a sudden Luca became chatty, after having spent the majority of the day in silence.

Several minutes passed and Hannes Speiser even asked Gala if he should call time. Maria Lampropoulos was squeezed in between Gala and Luca, barely able to watch the drama unfold.

Seven minutes after the shove, Gala called with {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} and Luca showed the {10-Spades}{7-Clubs} for a full house to bust the Italian and take a monster lead into the final.
