Cappello Collecting Chips

Joseph Cappello started the day third in chips, but he has been taking pot after pot early on here on day 2 to project him into the number one on the counts. Sitting with a massive stack its a wonder how Cappello manages to even get a glimpse of his cards with his mountain of chips in the way.

We recently saw him face a minor set back, when he raised preflop and a player in late position moved all in for 7,800. Cappello quickly made the call and both player flipped over their cards.

Cappello: {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

The dealer was then prompted to show a flop and it came out like this, {j-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{k-Spades}. Both players managed to snag top pair kings, but Cappello's was only second best as his kicker wasn't up to snuff. A {k-Clubs} on the turn changed nothing, just give Cappello a stronger losing hand. The {7-Diamonds} on the river sealed the deal and Cappello sent some chips over to his neighbor.
