Level 8: 400/800 (800)
Alfonso Simone limped from the hijack before Andrea Bracciali jammed for 10,000 from the cutoff. Domenico Zappia called from the button as did Alistair Sparrow from the big blind. Simone folded and Zappia turned his cards over as he perhaps didn’t see Sparrow’s call to show he had the A♣Q♣. The dealer forced him to keep his cards face-up as the 8♣4♠2♥ flop was dealt.
Sparrow fired out for 15,000. Zappia quickly folded and Sparrow and Simone showed their hands.
Alfonso Simone: A♠T♣
Alistair Sparrow: 6♦6♣
Sparrow’s sixes were good to felt Simone after the K♣ turn and the 2♣ river completed the board. Meanwhile, if Zappia was able to stick around, this same runout would have improved him to the nut flush.
Alistair Sparrow – 75,000
Alfonso Simone – 0
