Hero call gone wrong for Giuseppe Di Mauro

On table 24 a big pot was brewing between Giuseppe Di Mauro and the Dutch player Mateusz Moolhuizen.

The hand was on the river and the board read 8 5 6 A 9 with 1.2m in the middle.

Di Mauro checked and Moolhuizen bet 425k. Di Mauro didn’t take too long to call. He showed A J for top pair on a scary board. Moolhuizen turned over 9 7 for a straight and a thin, but apparently good value bet.

While Di Mauro is almost out, Moolhuizen has more than 2.5m chips now.
