Level 6: 200/500 (500)
There is a saying in poker that deuces never loses. Now between us, we know this isn’t always the case or even usually the case. But what if you flop a set of deuces? Typically you would expect them to never lose as well but that wasn’t the case just now for Danilo Scevola.
There were 6,400 in front of Alessandro La Barbera and a jam by Scevola that more than covered the 24,500 that La Barbera had behind with the 6♥4♥2♥8♠ on the board after the turn. La Barbera found a call and the cards were turned over.
Alessandro La Barbera: Q♦Q♥
Danilo Scevola: 2♦2♠
Scevola was ahead but La Barbera had some equity to survive with the two remaining queens still alive as well as any heart. Scevola slammed the table lightly before taking out his phone to snap a photo of the board in disbelief after La Barbera got there with a flush with the T♥ river completing the board.
Meanwhile, Day 1c is approaching 700 entries and counting. Great job to the players and Battle of Malta organizers for an amazing day.
