Hand #192 - Minieri

Dario Minieri raises the button to 180,000. Seth Fischer makes the call.


Both players check.

Turn = {10-Clubs}

There is still a lot of noise coming from the over-excited crowd.

Fischer bets 200,000, and Minieri calls.

A big pot is forming...

River = {8-Clubs}

Fischer bets 400,000, Minieri calls.

Minieri takes it with queens versus an inferior 10-9.

Italian singing from some of the keener segments of the crowd.

Hand #191 - Minieri

Oh lordy me
Oh lordy me
Fischer raises to 180,000, Minieri-all-in-Fischer-call. It's that fast.

Minieri: {3-Spades} {4-Spades}
Fischer: {K-Spades} {K-Diamonds}

Dario is putting on his coat.

Flop: {2-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {J-Spades}

It's a dangerous one, and there are a few "oohs" -- everyone holds their breath.

Turn: {4-Diamonds} -- Fischer looks as though he's fighting to hold back nausea.

River: {4-Hearts} -- the Minieri side of the stage erupts in absolute madness.

In yet another unlikely outdraw scenario, Minieri doubles up to 3 million, giving him back the chip lead.
