Event #1: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em MONSTER STACK
Days: 1b

Neuville on Six Digits

Level 7 : 250-500, 75 ante

On the tail end of a big pot between Viktor Kovachev and Pierre Neuville, the latter bet 14,000 on the {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades}{K-Clubs} river and Kovachev eventually called. Neuville rolled over {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for trips tens and raked in a decent pot, boosting his stack to six digits.

Roberto Romanello also faced a big bet on a heads-up river and it was Sergio Fernandez that made it 13,500 to go from the big blind. The board showed {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and Romanello said in table chat "I have a queen, that's pretty sick. Did you defend with queen six?" Ultimately, the Welshman tossed in the chips for the call and Fernandez indeed showed {Q-Clubs}{6-Spades} for a full house. Romanello dropped below the starting stack and has plenty of work ahead in the upcoming hours.
