Aces Give Romanello Big Double Through Baker

Roberto Romanello

From the hijack seat, David "ODB" Baker raised to 4,000. Roberto Romanello reraised to 11,000 on the button and then play folded back around to Baker. He took some time before reraising to 28,000. Romanello thought for a minute then moved all in for 73,000. Baker quickly called.

Baker: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Romanello: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}

The flop was {J-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Baker couldn't find much. He had Romanello covered, but it would be for roughly half his stack if he lost this one.

The turn delivered the {6-Hearts} to leave Baker drawing dead, then the river completed the board with the {9-Clubs}. Baker counted out what he owed and sent the chips Romanello's way.

Romanello stacked up to 150,000, while Baker dropped to 71,000.
