Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

An Early Double Up For Marco Traniello

Marco Traniello is vying for his second 2012 World Series of Poker (WSOP) cash after finishing in 20th place in Event #7 $1,500 Seven Card Stud. He came into the day towards the bottom tier of the chip counts with only 28,000 chips but has just doubled up.

There was an early position raise to 3,600 when Traniello raised pot from the big blind leaving 16,000 behind. His opponent made the call and when the {J-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} hit the flop Traniello moved all-in. His opponent called and when the cards were over turned Traniello was in great shape.
