Francesco Favia Flying High

Francesco Favia
Francesco Favia

Francesco Favia is one of the chip leaders here in Malta after eliminating two players in a single hand.

The bright-orange top wearing Italian got his chips into the middle with {Q-Spades}{Q-Spades} versus the {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} of Casper Toft and the {A-}{9-} of Latz Hendrik. His queens held and Favia flew towards the top of the counts.

He has just added some more chips after a clash with Ilan Boujenah. The pair checked the turn of a board reading {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} but Boujenah bet the {Q-Diamonds} river to the tune of 9,000. Favia called, showed the {A-Spades} and won another pot.
