Giovanni Rizzo is struggling to get into this tournament at the moment. He raises to 725 in early position, from a stack of around 10,000, and he receives one caller in the shape of John Pansar. The flop is T 7 6 and Rizzo c-bets 1,300 and Pansar calls. Both players check at the sight of the 7 and the final card is the K. Rizzo counts out a bet and puts 2,700 across the line and after a few minutes thought Pansar makes the call.
Rizzo taps the felt in acknowledgement that he is defeated and Pansar turns over 8 8 to take down the pot. Rizzo flashes A 9 before throwing them into the muck.
Pansar ~ 48,000
Rizzo ~ 5,000
