Event #8: €25,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller

Romero Doubles Through Kempe

poolshir • Level 22: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Rainer Kempe raised to 625,000 from under the gun with {a-Spades}{7-Spades}, James Romero found {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} on the button and decided to three-bet to 1,500,000. Action folded back to Kempe who called.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs} for Kempe to flop two pair but he was still behind against Romero who had the higher two pair. Kempe checked and Romero continued with a bet of 925,000. Kempe decided to shove with the bigger stack and Romero called for the 3,975,000 he had behind.

The cards went on their backs, the turn was the {2-Hearts} which didn't change the situation and the {9-Hearts} on the river didn't either and Romero doubled up.
