Piccioli Takes Massive Pot Off of Hughes


We caught up with the action on a flop of {5-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{A-Spades} to see Bryan Piccioli check to Ryan Hughes who bet 80,000. Piccioli took some time before announcing a call and the two were off to fourth street.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and Piccioli checked for a second time. Hughes dipped into his stack and moved 151,000 into the middle. Piccioli called a bit quicker on this street to see the {J-Spades} hit the river. Piccioli checked for a third time and Hughes moved a massive bet of 450,000 into the middle. Piccioli announced a snap call and Hughes triumphantly showed {A-Clubs}{k-Clubs} but was behind Piccioli's {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for trip jacks.

Hughes jumped up from the table and did a lap while muttering obscenities about his fortune in the hand. Piccioli, however, quietly stacked his newly found chips.
