Level 4: 200/400 (400)
Tomas Flanagan already had more than double a starting stack when he had fun with the table that included local hero Mark Vella, Germany’s Annamaria Hemmert, Emanuele Napolitano, Mattia Baccassino, Edward Thompson, Congliang Lyu and the always-smiling Samuel Debege.
Flanagan fired out for 10,000 into a pot of around the same with the [invalid notations] on the board after the turn and was snap-called by Lyu.
The Q♥ paired the board on the river and Flanagan attempted to win all of Lyu’s stack with an effective jam. Lyu, who had 45,000 back, went into the tank for about a minute before he tossed his hand into the muck.
Flanagan showed the Q♣J♦ for some flair and laughs with multiple people seemingly enjoying his hot start.
Tomas Flanagan – 140,000
Congliang Lyu – 45,000
