Level 2: 100/100 (100)
With so many players in the room, the action is fast-paced and after less than two levels we already lost 10 players. One player who will most likely not be among those anytime soon is the Italian Giovanni Gentile.
In a massive pot against Ga Bar-Gal he just doubled up. We arrived at the table with the board reading 8♠8♣2♦Q♦9♥. Roughly 11,000 chips were in the middle and Bar-Gal bet 3,100. Gentile quickly moved all-in and Bar-Gal called after he could not figure out a better course of action.
Bar-Gal tabled 8♦3♦ for trips, but was crushed against Gentile 9♦9♠. The Italian had rivered a boat and took home this massive pot.
Giovanni Gentile – 44,600
Ga Bar-Gal – 6,000
