Event #12: $1,500 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

A Double for Dato

• Nivel 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

From middle position, Andrea Dato raised to 32,000 before action folded around to our chip leader Nicholas Rampone in the big blind. After some thinking, Rampone decided to move Dato all in and found an instant call from the short stack.

Dato: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Rampone: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}

Dato was looking good to double up and the {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop kept his pair of Queen's in the lead. The {9-Hearts} did give Rampone some extra outs though and the crowd gathered on the main floor of the Amazon Room began chanting for a "7 ball".

They were disappointed, however, because the rier was the {k-Hearts} and Dato found his double. He now sits with 650,000 while Rampone falls to 1.16 Million. Our new short stack is David Diaz, who still has a healthy 420,000.
