The flop laid 8c4c3h and Domenic Amore and Paul Balzano got Amore’s 337,000 chips in the middle. Balzano owned Kh8s for top pair and was in good shape against the 6h5h open-ended straight of Amore.

Runout: Ad2s

Amore spiked his straight on the river and a pot that would have given Balzano nearly 1,000,000 of the 1,240,000 chips in play instead went the way of Amore.


Domenic Amore – 690,000 (69 bb)
Paul Balzano – 280,000 (28 bb)
