Cecilia Pescaglini lit up the World Poker Tour (WPT) stop at Malta as she trailblazed her way through the field. She eventually lost to the eventual winner Matt Giannetti in the heads up confrontation but she left an impression on everyone who was at that event.
Pescaglini is back and she has made a few changes. Her long blonde hair as gone and it has been replaced by a new brunette look but somethings have not changed! We have just witnessed her infectious excitement and wonderfully intriguing choice of poker decisions. It's like WPT Malta all over again!
Both Sam El Sayed and Michael Keiner were playing the short stack before the start of the hand and Pescaglini opens to 350 in early position. Sam El Sayed makes the call from the cutoff and when the action folds around to Keiner in the big blind he squeezes to 2,500. Pescaglini makes the call but Sam El Sayed moves all-in for around 8,000 and change. Keiner also moves all-in and Pescaglini tank-calls.
Pescaglini: 3 3
Keiner: A J
El Sayed: J 9
Board: 6 5 4 7 5
Pescaglini lets out a howl of delight and starts jumping up and down and clapping her hands as both Kiener and El Sayed get to their feet and leave the table.
Pescaglini ~ 45,000
