Giuseppe Pantaleo (Event 38) absolutely snapped.

Moments ago, after taking a bad beat, Giuseppe Pantaleo snapped. He lost it.

We couldn't decipher most of what he was saying - it was in German - but he was screaming at both Ismail Erkenov (who just eliminated him) and the dealer.

"IS THAT REAL?!?!?!" he finally screamed in English.

Pantaleo stormed away from the table, smacked a nearby chip cart, and exited the Brasilia Room. When we reached the table, we saw that the board was {9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts}, and Pantaleo had {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. Erkenov had {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for trip threes however, and according to a player at the table, Pantaleo was all in preflop for 43,100.

We're not sure what happened to Pantaleo, but the tournament staff wasn't very happy about his behavior.
