Unlucky Number 13 For Romanello

Roberto Romanello has rolled into town. This is his third event of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and he couldn't be in a tougher spot. He currently occupies the 3 seat at Table 13 where his opponents include Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier (1), Scott Clements (2), Eugene Katchalov (3), Robert Mizrachi (7) and Matt Giannetti (8). In addition to the tough opposition, the man from Tom Jones country has also dropped a sizeable portion of his starting stack. We caught up with the action on the turn and Romanello was battling it out with Mizrachi.
