Level 8: 400/800 (800)
Slowly the action picks up pace. With 400/800 blinds and ante in play, players are enticed to play more aggressively and more and more players are working with shallow stacks, leading to more and more preflop all-ins.
One of those all-ins we just witnessed at Table 35. In a button vs blind clash, Alessandro Barone was all-in with AXQX against Giacomo Picone who held AXJX.
Picone was dominated but the board ran out KXJX4X2XAX, giving him two pair and awarding him the pot, and sending Barone to the rails.
Giacomo Picone – 55,000
Alessandro Barone – 0
