Pescaglini Finally Relinquishes The Chip Lead
Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Marvin Rettenmaier, Cecilia Pescaglini, Featured Blog, Season X, Casino at Portomaso, WPT Malta
Marvin Rettenmaier raises to 13,000 in the hijack and Cecilia Pescaglini calls in the big blind. The flop is Q 7 3 and Pescaglini check-calls a 16,000 Rettenmaier bet. The turn is the 4 and Pescaglini checks to Rettenmaier and he counts out a 32,000 bet and moves it into the middle and the Italian snap-calls. The final card is the 9 and Pescaglini decides to adopt a different approach and leads for 55,000. Rettenmaier's masseuse seems to feel the moment and stops rubbing while he counts out a raise and makes it 158,000 to play. Pescaglini makes the call and mucks her hand after the German flips his over to reveal 7 8.
Rettenmaier ~ 770,000
Pescaglini ~ 485,000
