Salvatore Montagna was down to 14k chips – 6 big blinds – and sitting two spots to the right of Fabrice Soulier. It looked like he was out hte door when he moved all-in with 7♥ 5♥ and was called by the German Jonas Rothmund with A♥ J♥.
The flop even gave Rothmund top pair: A♣ 3♥ 5♦. Montagna was already up from his chair when the dealer turned over the last 2 cards: 4♦ 6♠ – and unlikely straight saved Montagna.
The very next hand Montagna faced an all-in for 10k chips from another short stack – Robin Olsen. Montagna found virtually the same hand he just won against: A♣ J♥. Montagna called and Olsen showed 9♠ 7♠.
But the Swede didn’t have any luck with his suited semi-connector. The board gave Montagna two pair and just like that he’s up to more than 50k within two hands.
Meanwhile, Sofia Lövgren seems to have a better day today than yesterday, as she is now up to over 100k in chips.
