A hand positively ballooned on Table 44 just now. Four-way to a Js 5h Ts flop, it checked to Augusto Evangelisti who bet 1,500. Saulius Tumosa called and small blind Vlad Andrusca then check-raised to 7,000. The big blind (Tarique Imam) thought for a while before folding, as did Evangelisti.
When action returned to Tumosa, however, he moved all in – for nearly 50,000!
Back to sole remaining opponent Andrusca, who immediately made the call. Both players flipped over Tx Jx for top two pair (no spades among them), and had a laugh about the niceness of the hands.
The turn brought the 9h and a sigh from Imam, who’d apparently folded king-queen, and the river 6h saw a chop of one of the biggest pots of the Americas Cup so far.
