Another Pot To Kerignard

Level 24 : 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Alessio Isaia opened on the button and both of his opponents made the call. The trio shared the {3-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop. Genovesi lead out for 33,000, Kerignard raised to 83,000 and only Genovesi called.

Genovesi then check-called a 154,000 bet on the {3-Clubs} turn , in fact he snap calleed, but both players checked the {9-Hearts} river. Kerignard showed red {q-}{j-} and it was enough to scoop another pot.

Jackson Genovesi opened the betting with his standard sized 42,000 raise from the button and he was the only caller when Yorane Kerignard three-bet to 99,000 from the small blind.

The {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop saw Keirgnard keep up the aggression and make it 87,000 to play and Genovesi had no problem in making the call. The {9-Clubs} on the turn halted the run of red cards on the board and now Kerignard checked, but when Genovesi bet 182,000 Kerignard check-raised to 442,000. The dealer placed the {2-Clubs} onto the river and Kerignard moved all in.

"Wow! Wow! You are the sickest," said Genovesi before adding, "This might take a while. You know I have a straight right? Of course you do, you are too good. Maybe you have the {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for the flush? You re representing it well but that doesn't mean you have it."

Eventually Genovesi folded an showed {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} fr the straight. Kerignard simply mucked his hand and started to stack his chips.

Isaia Wins Large Pot From Genovesi

Level 23 : 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Alessio Isaia has just helped himself to a large pot after taking on the table captain Jackson Genovesi.

Isaia opened the betting with a raise to 42,000 from the button and both Genovesi called in the small blind and Yorane Kerignard also called in the big blind.

Genovesi lead out for 37,000 on a {8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} flop, Kerignard mucked but Isaia made the call. The {7-Diamonds} turn saw Genovesi revert to checking but he soon called when Isaia bet 73,000.

The river was the {5-Hearts} and Genovesi checked again. Isaia bet again, increasing his bet to 156,000; a bet that Genovesi talked himself into calling.

"King-queen?" asked Genovesi but he was wrong as Isaia did hold two pair, made with his {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Genovesi mucked and whilst doing so said , "nice one Ali. Lucky but nice. I didn't really want to give you chips."

But alas he did.

Hui Chen Kuo Eliminated In 4th Place (€39,200)

Level 23 : 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

WPT Malta is now an all-male affair after "Kitty" Hui Chen Kuo was eliminated at the hands of Yorane Kerignard.

It was Kerignard who opened to 40,000 from the button and Kitty three-bet to 103,000 and when Alessio Isaia folded his big blind Kerignard moved all-in. Kitty called and the cards were revealed.

Kitty: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Kerignard: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}

The first three community cards were the {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Spades} giving Kerignard the spade flush draw, which was completed when {6-Spades} fell on the turn. The meaningless {6-Clubs} was the river card and Kitty's tournament was over.
