Rosadoni Shoves On O'Brien

[user68268]

From the button, Giovanni Rosadoni limped in. Dan O'Brien checked his option to see the {9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop. O'Brien bet 19,000, and Rosadoni called.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} to pair the board. O'Brien slid forward 48,000, but Rosadoni had other things in mind and raised all in. O'Brien thought for a bit while trying to speak to Rosadoni. Rosadoni doesn't speak English, so the conversation didn't go too well, but O'Brien did get a laugh. Eventually, O'Brien folded, and Rosadoni won the pot. Rosadoni showed just the {7-Spades}.

Rosadoni vs,. O'Brien for the Gold

[user68268]

Welcome back for what is set to be the final day of Event #4: €3,250 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout at the 2012 World Series of Poker Europe. Just two players remaining chasing down the ultimate prize in poker: a WSOP gold bracelet.

Last night, Dan O'Brien and Giovanni Rosadoni battled for a few long hours before the time ran out on the casino's open hours, which forced them to halt play for the night. When it ended, there were 25 minutes left in the 8,000/16,000/2,000 level and Rosadoni has the lead. When things finished very early this morning just before 5:00 AM, Rosadoni bagged 787,000 in chips to O'Brien's 490,000.

Neither of these players have a WSOP gold bracelet, paving the way for a first-time winner today. Rosadoni doesn't even have a WSOP cash on record. In fact, the only cash found from him came from August 2011 in the Cannes Hold'em Series €1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event where he finished third for €9,000.

O'Brien has a lot more results and experience on the felt, despite being much younger. In WSOP events alone, O'Brien has $564,339 in earnings, 16 cashes and two final tables. His best WSOP result came in 2008 when he took third in the $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $198,132. O'Brien has also been on a bit of a heater this month. He's riding the heels of a fourth-place finish in the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for €341,991.

Play is set to resume at 3:00 PM local time, which is just a few minutes away. Stay tuned right here to PokerNews for all the live coverage!
