Vas Nunes Rivers Trips; Scoops a Large One


Action began with Mario Puccini under-the-gun, who opened for 40,000. Jackie Glazier flatted from the button and Paul Vas Nunes came along as well from the small blind for a three-way pot.

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Vas Nunes checked to Puccini, who c-bet for 60,000. Glazier got out of the way, but Vas Nunes made the call.

The {Q-Spades} fell on the turn and Vas Nunes again check called - this time for a 135,000 bet from Puccini.

When the {9-Hearts} completed the board, Vas Nunes led out for 320,000 and Puccini called. Vas Nunes tabled {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for trip nines. Puccini showed that he had {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for aces and queens and mucked his hand.

Vas Nunes is up to 1.68 million following the hand, while Puccini has slipped to 550,000.
