Level 12: 2,000/3,000 (3,000)
There was around 35,000 in the pot with the A♦9♥5♣ on the board after the flop when a raising war took place between Giovanni Palella and Richard Burke.
Palella check-raised Nobel’s 10,000 bet to 35,000. Burke went into the tank for about two minutes before he jammed for 80,000. Palella paused for a few moments before he folded.
Burke looked back down at his cards and opted to show the 4♦. If he had another diamond, he had a flush draw. Otherwise, this card represented complete air. Either way, Burke earned the pot and chipped up during the penultimate level of Day 1d.
Giovanni Palella – 170,000
Richard Burke – 150,000
