WPT Champions Members: Frankenberger & Romanello
Level 3: 100-200, ante
Fellow WPT Champions Club members Andy Frankenberger and Roberto Romanello are sharing table space over at Table 22. Frankenberger is hoping to clear off the cobwebs after losing to Phil Laak in the Premier League Group Playoffs yesterday. Romanello is looking sharp. He has given alcohol the boot in order to lose a little bit of weight, and as so far shed one stone. He may be losing his weight, but continues to pile on the chips, as this hand demonstrates.
Frankenberger raises to 525, on the button, and Romanello calls in the big blind. The flop is A K 7 and Romanello check/calls a 525 Frankenberger bet. On the turn we see the 2 and once again the action is check/call; this time for 1,025. The river is the 4 and both players check.
"Queen high," says Frankenberger.
Romanello flips over A Q and takes down the pot.
Also seated at the WPT Champions Club table are Dominik NItsche, Stefan Mattson and Erich Kollman.
Romanello ~ 45,000
Frankenberger ~ 30,000
