Level 21: 10,000/15,000 (15,000)
There is a famous saying from the iconic HBO series The Sopranos, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
This saying applies to the following hand between Dusan Bartak and Guilio Di Salvo.
Dusan Bartak jammed for less than five big blinds from the hijack. Giulio Di Salvo raised to under 100,000 from the cutoff and the rest of the table folded.
Dusan Bartak: Q♦5♦
Giulio Di Salvo: A♣8♣
Bartak improved to two pair on the K♣Q♠5♥ flop and had his opponent drawing dead on the 4♥ turn. The A♥ river paired up Di Salvo. Bartak stood up to leave the table and walk a couple of steps away.
The dealer and several of the players at the table pointed out he won the hand. Bartak didn’t go too far away and retook his seat after he understood that he won the hand.
Giulio Di Salvo – 1,800,000
Dusan Bartak – 150,000
