Cesar Fuentes

Cesar Fuentes opened to 155,000 from under the gun and Francis Margaglione called in the big blind to the 8c6d5d flop. Margaglione checked, Fuentes bet 170,000 and Margaglion check-raised enough to put him all in. Fuentes quickly called and Margaglione was not happy to see the hands.
