Nigel Moran’s dreams of Seniors glory are over after his shove for just under 70,000 (blinds now 4k/8k) was called by heftily stacked Claudio Di Giacomo.
Moran: 5s 5d
Di Giacomo: Ah Th
The board brought an ace and Di Giacomo’s stack now tops 320,000.
Meanwhile, pocket sixes for Francis McClean in a similar situation (all in for around 50,000 preflop) more than held vs. the As 8h of caller Stewars Samuels.
The board came down 6s Jd 8s 4c 6h for quads. Samuels drops to 32,000.
