Event #22: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship

Two Big Ones for Pescatori

• Nivel 26


With limits this big anything can happen, and Max Pescatori is attempting to prove that. The Italian-pro had been short for quite some time, but after winning a few pots he's now near the top. First he had the bring-in and Christopher Wallace raised on his left, after Randy Ohel called.

Pescatori called and on fourth Wallace bet, Ohel called and Pescatori raised. Wallace folded and Ohel called. On fifth street both players checked, and Pescatori fired again on sixth - enough to take this pot down.

Pescatori: {X-}{X-} / {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Wallace: {X-}{X-} / {Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} fold
Ohel: {X-}{X-} / {7-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades} fold

Stud 8

The game changed, but Pescatori's tactics didn't. It was Richard Ashby who completed and this time Pescatori and Ohel called. On fourth street Pescatori bet and both Ashby and Ohel called. On fifth, Pescatori bet again and both of his opponents folded.

Pescatori: {X-}{X-} / {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Ohel: {X-}{X-} / {K-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} fold
Ashby: {X-}{X-} / {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} fold
