Indifferent Start For Romanello
Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante
The WPT Champions Club member Roberto Romanello was one of the brightest sparks yesterday, but as of yet he has not been ignited. But it is early, and we are sure that as he airs his morning cobwebs we will see him step up a gear. Here he is in action with Liwei Sun.
Sun raises to 2,300 in first position and a procession of folds later Romanello came into the pot with the three-bet from the small blind. The price to pay was 5,600 and Sun made the call. The dealer places the J 8 6 onto the flop and for a moment both players seem to perk up. Romanello checks, Sun bets 6,400, Romanello puts enough red into the pot to put Sun all-in and he calls (we believe Sun had about 26,000 behind).
Both players turn the cards over and it is Sun who is streets ahead with his K J, Romanello had Tx 9x for the open ended straight draw. The turn is the 9 and Sun closed the pot up early and nobody cared for the 7.
Sun ~ 63,000
Romanello ~ 98,000
