WPT Venice is Minus a Romanello
Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante
The Romanello's live in Gorseinon Swansea, but you can hazard a guess from their surname that they are of Italian stock. This is why Roberto brought along his little brother Antoni to play in the WPT Venice Grand Prix. Both players made it through to Day 2 with Roberto ending Day 1 with 43,900 and Antoni ending with 25,200. But Antoni has just been eliminated at the hands of Stefano Marinzulich.
Antoni Romanello held pocket jacks on a board of 7x 7x 3x 8x when stacks went into the middle and Marinzulich held 7x 8x for the full house. Marinzulich now has 120,000 chips and the tournament has one less Romanello.
