Moyal Set Up, Cut Down

We’re less than 10 spots away from the bubble on Day 1B of the Battle of Malta and right now the poker gods decided to hand Eliyahu Moyal from Israel a crippling set-up.

He found pocket kings and in front of him and a player had already raised. He re-raised. Then from the blinds Angelo Censabella went all-in for 75k.

After the initial raiser folded Moyal instantly called but his Italian opponent greeted him with pocket aces – a harsh setup.

The board fell jack-high and the pot went to Censabella.

Moyal, meanwhile, is down to scraps and on his last life line going into the bubble.
