Jesse Lonis

Frank Funaro and Jesse Lonis were heads-up to the Ac9s8c flop and Lonis checked from the big blind. Funaro bet 180,000 and Lonis called. The turn was Qc and both players checked.

The river was 5d, Lonis checked, and Funaro bet 500,000. Lonis thought for a minute, called the bet, and Funaro immediately said “straight”.

He showed 7s6s for a nine-high straight, Lonis mucked, and Funaro took his spot back at the top of the counts.

Frank Funaro – 4,920,000 (123 bb)
Jess Lonis – 900,000 (23 bb)
