Vornicu Dodges "Fifty Outs" To Double

• Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Valentin Vornicu, who completed for 15,000 showing the {k-Hearts}, got the last of his stack in against Anthony Zinno on fifth street, having called Zinno's bet on fourth.

Vornicu: {x-}{x-}/{k-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} (he turned over {j-Hearts}{6-Clubs} when all-in)
Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{9-Hearts}{a-Spades}{q-Clubs} (he showed {7-Hearts}{8-Hearts})

"A pair of sixes against fifty outs," said Vornicu. He dodged them all.

Vornicu Needs Heat

mnuwwarah • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Valentin Vornicu just dropped two pots and is in the danger zone with less than three bets.

The first one, he was calling down Eli Elezra until Elezra picked up open aces on sixth.

Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{q-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Vornicu: {x-}{x-}/{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

Vornicu had paired his door card but he opted to release after some thought.

Then, he tangled with Anthony Zinno. Zinno check-called fifth and then led sixth when he showed three Broadways.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{2-Spades}{k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Vornicu: {x-}{x-}/{j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{7-Spades}

Vornicu peeled the river but folded to a final bet.

Jacks Up Good for Vornicu

• Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Another pot just shy of 200,000 chips went to Vornicu after he tanked for a while on the river before calling down Anthony Zinno.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}/{x-}
Vornicu: {x-}{x-}/{j-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}/{x-}

Vornicu asked the dealer to spread the pot (it was around 130,000) and then threw in the 30,000 call. Zinno showed {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts} which fit with his wheelish low diamonds like a square peg in a round hole. Zinno showed jacks up and took the pot.
