Trips Again For Dato
Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Andrea Dato limps on the button holding A Q, Alessandro Longobardi also limps from the small blind before Andrea Dato calls, holding T 5. The flop is 6 5 2 and Longobardi checks, Dato bets 60,000, Bogdanov calls and Longobardi folds.
Two way to the turn and Dato hits trips once more when the 5 appears. It is nice to hit trips, but even better when your 185,000 bet is raised to 370,000, which is what happened. Dato makes the call and we see a river of 9. Both players check and Dato wins the pot and takes the chip lead.
Dato ~ 2,455,000
Bogdanov ~ 1,450,000
Longobardi ~ 700,000
