The Comeback Kids


If you read in our coverage earlier that JC Alvarado and Roberto Romanello were in very bad shape and assumed they were destined to fail, shame on you!

Both of them are firmly on the comeback trail.

Alvarado raised to 1,200 from the cut-off to see Noah Schwartz three-bet him to 3,300 from the next seat. Alvarado put in a four-bet to 8,200 and called all in for 33,300 when Schwartz set him in.

Alvarado was in great shape with {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} to his opponent's {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} but made made to sweat all the way down the {a-Hearts}{5-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} board. He fell behind on the flop before getting out of it on the river.

Romanello meanwhile was showing how much heart he has to double back up to his starting stack.

He raised to 1,600 after Imad Derwiche limped in front of him. Another player and Derwiche called to a {8-}{9-}{6-} flop. Romanello continued for 1,800 and only Derwiche called. Both players checked the {5-} turn before Derwiche set Romanello all in on the {8-} river. The Welshman called with {a-}{j-} and was right as his opponent mucked.
