Isaia Wins Large Pot From Genovesi

YorkshirePud • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Alessio Isaia has just helped himself to a large pot after taking on the table captain Jackson Genovesi.

Isaia opened the betting with a raise to 42,000 from the button and both Genovesi called in the small blind and Yorane Kerignard also called in the big blind.

Genovesi lead out for 37,000 on a {8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} flop, Kerignard mucked but Isaia made the call. The {7-Diamonds} turn saw Genovesi revert to checking but he soon called when Isaia bet 73,000.

The river was the {5-Hearts} and Genovesi checked again. Isaia bet again, increasing his bet to 156,000; a bet that Genovesi talked himself into calling.

"King-queen?" asked Genovesi but he was wrong as Isaia did hold two pair, made with his {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Genovesi mucked and whilst doing so said , "nice one Ali. Lucky but nice. I didn't really want to give you chips."

But alas he did.
