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

Ronconi Continues to Slide


Joseph Chaplin opened to 50,000 from early position and was called by Darryl Ronconi on the small blind and Roger Fontes in the big for a three-way pot.

The flop brought the {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and all three players checked.

Ronconi led out for 70,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn, which got a fold out of Fontes, but Chaplin came along and made the call.

The river fell the {Q-Spades} and Ronconi check-called a 170,000 bet from Chaplin. Chaplin tabled the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for a rivered pair of queens, which bested Ronconi's {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} for a pair of eights.

Chaplin is up to 1,130,000 while Ronconi is down to his last 520,000.
