Adinolfi On Top

Mario Adinolfi

We picked up the action on a hand with the chip leader Mario Adinolfi on sixth street as his board read (x)(x) / {4-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}. His opponent had (x)(x) / {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} showing and raised after Adinolfi bet. Adinolfi tanked for a little and then called before the two players received their last card. Adinolfi checked seventh, his opponent bet and Adinolfi called.

Adinolfi's opponent showed {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} from his down cards for trip queens. Adinolfi couldn't beat it and mucked his hand, dropping back to 18,000.

On the next hand, Adinolfi was involved in another pot. After a player brought in, a second player completed with the {9-Spades} up. One player called with the {10-Hearts} up and then Adinolfi called with the {3-Diamonds} up.

After picking up the high hand on fourth street and holding it until seventh, Adinolfi drove the betting each way. One opponent called down, while the other opponent folded on fifth street.

Adinolfi: (x)(x) / }3d}{A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} / (x)
Opponent 1: (x)(x) / {10-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs} / (x)
Opponent 2: (x)(x) / {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts} - fold

On seventh, Adinolfi thought it was on his opponent as he was mistaken on who had the high hand. His opponent squeezed and then checked, thinking he was up as Adinolfi said he was first. After seeing his opponent check, Adinolfi bet. His opponent mucked his hand, but the dealer stopped the action and said that both players had checked, due to the fact that Adinolfi was supposed to be first. Adinolfi shrugged and tabled the {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{3-Spades} from his hand for two pair and his opponent mucked.
