One person settling into life quite comfortably on Table 34 is Giovanni Rizzo. Here is the PartyPoker sponsored pro doubling up through fellow compatriot Mario Adinolfi.
Rizzo raises to 400 from the hijack and Adinolfi three-bets to 1,600 in the cutoff. The play folds around to Rizzo and he decides to see a flop out of position and makes the call. The dealer hands us a J T 6 flop and all hell breaks loose. Rizzo checks, Adinolfi bets 3,000, Rizzo check-raises to 7,000, Adinolfi moves all-in and Rizzo calls for 27,000 total. Rizzo turns over T T and Adinolfi's pained expression says it all as he turns over Q Q.
The turn 8 and river 3 offer no help to Adinolfi and Rizzo doubles up.
Rizzo ~ 62,000
Adinolfi ~ 10,000
