Cirillo Loses Monster Pot to Karaarslan; Doubles Twice After

zedmaster84 • Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Feyzullah Karaarslan

The two chip leaders went to war on the outer table and created a pot of around 550,000 to the {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts} turn. Matteo Cirillo bet 375,000 and was called by Feyzullah Karaarslan. On the {2-Diamonds} river, Cirillo moved all-in for nearly 3.4 million and the equally big-stacked Karaarslan immediately grinned and asked for a count.

Ultimately, Karaarslan indeed called and Cirillo jumped out of his seat in disgust as his stone cold bluff with the {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} was caught. Karaarslan had {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for the second nuts and stormed into a huge lead.

Cirillo then doubled the last 105,000 one hand later and then three-bet jammed against Do Tran to get called.

Matteo Cirillo: {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Do Tran: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

The board ran out {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Cirillo survived once more.
