Event 44: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Rocco Moves Away

[user162117] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Rocco Palumbo

Rocco Palumbo has improved his chip lead further, taking down the following hand. Nelson Robinson was on the button when he raised it up to 80,000. Palumbo called and the dealer got three cards ready.

Flop: {9-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Palumbo checked here and then called the 95,000-chip bet of Robinson. On the {6-Hearts} turn, Palumbo check-called a bet of 175,000 and the {7-Diamonds} would complete the board on the river.

This time both players checked and Palumbo turned over {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, his pair of nines enough to send Robinson's cards into the muck.
