Level 2: 100/100 (100)
This isn’t the first rodeo for United Kingdom’s Albert Sapiano at the Battle of Malta as he is well-known for providing action and fun at the tables. Sapiano chipped up a little bit before giving some back in the following hand against another well-known player in Malta in Massimo Bruno.
Sapiano fired out a pot-sized bet of 3,000 on the A♦4♣8♣ flop. One player folded before Bruno quickly called. Sapiano took his foot off the gas on the J♠ turn. Bruno bet 3,000 and Sapiano snap-called.
Both players checked the 5♥ river. Sapiano turned over the A♠3♠ for the top pair but had some kicker issues with Bruno scooping up the pot after showing his A♣T♣.
Massimo Bruno – 45,000
Albert Sapiano – 21,000
