Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Speranza Doubles Up Immediately

poolshir • Level 6: 300-500, 500 ante

Gianluca Speranza just sat down and immediately got involved in the first hand he got dealt.

Markus Steger raised to 1,500 from mid-position and was called by Yoan Argence in the hijack and Speranza in the big blind.

The flop came {j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, both Speranza and Steger checked. Argence bet 4,000 which only Speranza called.

The turn was the {k-Spades}, Speranza checked again and Argence bet 9,000. Speranza glanced at Argence before making the call.

The river completed the board with the {10-Spades}, Speranza now shoved. Argence asked how much he had, the dealer counted out Speranza's stack and confirmed he has 25,100 left.

"Ace-queen?" Argence asked Speranza but got no reaction of him.

Argence contemplated for a bit longer and then put in the chips for the call. Speranza tabled {q-Hearts}{j-Spades} the rivered straight and Argence just nodded. The dealer forced him to table his cards and Argence complied, showing {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for the flopped set of nines.
