Event 31 - $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-handed

Day 3 Completed

Hand #196 - Minieri

We're seeing more walkies than Crufts at the moment, but with Dario Minieri on the button, we see some action, the Italian making it 160,000 to play. It's enough to lap up the blinds and antes.

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.
