Poker is a funny old game. Only moments ago Giovanni Rizzo was staring at a dream flop of 9 9 5 while holding Tx 9x and now he is outside facing the cold icy water of the Venetian canals.
Rizzo was in fantastic shape when a raising war developed with the net result being an all-in confrontation with Sean Jazayeri who was holding 8x 8x. Then poker showed how cruel it could be when the turn 6 and river 7 handed Jazayeri an unlikely straight eliminating Rizzo from the competition.
