Anthony Bellino

The player in the cutoff raised to 2,500, Stephen Caplan called from the button, and Anthony Bellino reraised from the small blind to 12,400. The cutoff called, and Caplan folded.

The flop came 7c5s2h, Bellino moved all in, and the player in the cutoff called all in for 21,500 with 9s9h for an overpair.

But Bellino turned over AhAd, and the cutoff needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Kc, the river card was the 7d, and the aces held up for Bellino to win the pot and eliminate his opponent.

Anthony Bellino  –  144,000  (180 bb)
