Event #19: $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Another Round for Traniello

• Taso 15: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Marco Traniello (Day 1)

Marco Traniello posted the big blind of 3,000, leaving a single yellow T1,000 chip behind. JJ Liu raised to 8,000 from early position, and the action folded to Traniello.

"One more hand," he said, folding so that the table could see the {2-Spades}.

On the next hand he was in for less than the small blind. The action folded to him, and he showed {k-Spades}{4-Spades}. Paul Volpe, who was in the big blind, kept his cards hidden, but told Mark Herm that he has "burgers."

"Chirp's got burgers," Herm told Jason Mercier.

"What are burgers?" Mercier asked.

Over on an adjacent table, Dan Kelly and Steven Kelly were heads up on a board of {4-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}. Dan checked to Steven who fired out 22,500. Dan check-potted, basically going all in, and Steven folded.

Volpe was finally allowed to reveal his burgers - {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} - and the flop fell {3-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. The {6-Hearts} on the turn gave Traniello a gut-shot straight draw, but Volpe held two deuces and Herm admitted to "folding a burger."

Low and behold the case burger - the {2-Hearts} - completed the board, and Traniello doubled to 2,000.

"One more round," he said with a smile.

Steven Kelly us 146,000 -52,000
Dan Kelly us 132,000 42,000
Marco Traniello it 2,000 -2,000
