Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

One Step Forward-One Step Back

Max Silver hadn't even finished stacking his chips when he was handing them over to Dario Sammartino. This is what happened.

Andy Moseley raised to 26,000 in the hijack seat, Dario Sammartino three-bet to 62,000 in the cut-off and Max Silver cold four-bet to 148,000 on the button. Moseley quickly moved out of the way but Sammartino five-bet to 299,000. Silver asked for a count and the dealer declared it was 299,000.

"I am all-in," said Silver.

Sammartino called instantly and we had a huge showdown.

Remarkably Sammartino has leap-frogged over Silver in the chip counts.
