Giovanni Rizzo has just been telling us how his decision to enter Day 1a at WPT Venice has led to a different way of playing. Armed with the knowledge that he can re-enter tomorrow, should he be unsuccessful today, he has widened his game and been a lot more aggressive.The results have not been great (Rizzo is down to 7,400) but he has said he has learned a lot, gotten unlucky and had a bit of fun in the process.
Rizzo raises to 800 under the gun and there are three callers. The flop is K 3 2 and Rizzo c-bets 1,100 when checked to and Andrea Sighinolfi is the only player to make the call. Just before the turn card comes down Rizzo checks in the dark. The card is the 8 and Sighinolfi also checks. The final card is the A and Rizzo checks once more but Sighinolfi likes the card and moves all-in for 4,000. Rizzo throws his hand high into the air and it floats gently into the muck.
