High Roller: Nick Petrangelo Check-Raises Twice

$25,000 High Roller No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 20: 15,000/30,000 with a 5,000 ante
Players Remaining: 8 of 94

Steffen Sontheimer opened the button with a raise, and Nick Petrangelo defended his big blind.

The flop came TcTd2d. Petrangelo checked, Sontheimer continued for 55,000, and Petrangelo check-raised to 160,000. Sontheimer called, and the turn was the 2c. Petrangelo checked again, Sontheimer bet 165,000, and Petrangelo put in a second check-raise to 390,000. Sontheimer quickly folded.

Petrangelo tabled Jc9c as the dealer pushed him the pot. He’s the most active player at the table right now, and his stack has benefitted from his aggression so far. The Massachusetts pro is now the chip leader with eight players remaining.

Nick Petrangelo – 2,640,000 (88 bb)
Steffen Sontheimer – 655,000 (22 bb)
