2019 World Series of Poker Europe

Event #1: €550 COLOSSUS No-Limit Hold'em

Gatta Holds the Edge Preflop

ajlamers • Level 23: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

Nelio Gatta opened to 65,000 from early position and the action folded to the big blind who jammed all in for 290,000. Gatta asked for a quick count and then made the call.

Nelio Gatta: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

Gatta held the preflop advantage with the better kicker and the flop of {k-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} increased his odds even more. The {6-Clubs} on the turn left his opponent drawing to just three outs and the {9-Hearts} on the river was not one of them.
