Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Pescatori Beats Up Lunkin


We just had a European clash between $40,000 No Limit Hold'em event winner Vitaly Lunkin and double bracelet winner Max Pescatori. Pescatori came out on top and has a very nice stack going into the sixth level of the day.

Pescatori: (x)(x) / {5-Clubs} / {8-Clubs} / {10-Hearts} / {4-Spades} / (x)
Lunkin: (x)(x) / {A-Clubs} / {Q-Clubs} / {3-Diamonds} / {J-Spades} / (x)

Pescatori raised on third street, Lunkin three-bet and the Italian pro called. On fourth street Lunkin bet and Pescatori called. Ace high was still in the lead on fifth street and Pescatori called another bet. Sixth street didn't change the action as Lunkin kept betting and Pescatori followed up with a call. When Seventh street got dealt Lunkin bet again and called Pescatori's raise. Pescatori showed {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and with his full house he took down the pot.
