Time to Bag and Tag
We’ve played down to our stopping point for the evening, and players are bagging and tagging for the night. Stay tuned for a recap of all the action.
Dicarlo Gets a Knockout With Only Two Hands Remaining
Facing a shove, Salvatore Dicarlo made the decision to call and try to increase his stack before the night ended.
As the flop came , Dicarlo's opponent erupted "No! No! This can't happen now."
The board ran out a turn and river to award Dicarlo the knockout with only two hands remaining at his table.
Seven Hands Remain
Dealers in Day 1c of the MSPT Venetian Poker Bowl IV have been instructed to deal just seven more hands.
Zipperich Scores the Knockout
A player in middle position went all in for 38,000. A moment after the player in the cutoff raised to 75,000, Stephen Zipperich went all in for over 300,000. The player in the cutoff didn't delay, but he did chuckle as he showed and folded.
The board ran out and awarded the knockout to Zipperich.
The player in the cutoff nodded his head thankful he folded his queens correctly as Zipperich stacked up his new chips.
