Event 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Puccini Doubles Through Patel


We caught up with the action on a {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop, where Mario Puccini had his entire stack of 378,000 in the middle against Hiren Patel.

Patel: {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for an open-ended straight draw and flush draw.
Puccini: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for a set of nines.

The {Q-Clubs} turn and {5-Diamonds} river left Puccini with nines-full of queens and he doubled through Hiren, who was knocked down to 100,000.

Puccini is up to 820,000.
