Team PokerStars Pro Makes O 8/b a Foreign Affair

Team PokerStars Pro is being represented by a full international contingent today. Dario Minieri, on Team Italy, is holding court near the rail. Costa Rican Humberto Brenes and his shark are making a splash, and Russian Alex Kravchenko is quietly intimidating as usual. Johannes Steindl, who makes up 100% of Team Austria, was seated one table over from Team Germany member George Danzer earlier in the event, but their tables were both broken just before dinner.

Steindl is in much better shape after this recent triple up. After one limper, Steindl raised. A player in late position stuck in another raise, and the limper and Steindl both called. The flop fell {9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and the first player to act check-folded when Steindl bet and the other player raised. Johannes moved all in for another half bet. Steindl tabled {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs} for a flopped straight. His opponent was not so happy to see his {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} in bad shape. The turn and river bricked and Steindl more than doubled up.
