Sammartino Closes the Gap with Beckley

[user20283] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Dario Sammartino had been the shortest stack in the tournament for three straight levels, but he just managed to chip up enough to edge into third place.

Nick Maimone just raised to 140,000 and Dario Sammartino called from the big blind. The flop brought out {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{8-Spades} and both players checked, after which Sammartino bet 125,000 on the {6-Clubs} turn.

Maimone made the call and the river was the {K-Spades}, on which Sammartino bet another 375,000.

Maimone gave it serious consideration before finally putting in the call. Sammartino showed {9-Spades}{7-Spades} for a flush and he took down the pot.
