Double Elimination for Lan After Sick Runout
Frank Pezzaniti opened from the button and Corentin Hillion flat-called in the small blind. Tu Lan was in the big blind and three-bet to 75,000. Pezzaniti flat-called before Hillion four-bet all in for 417,000. Lan tank-called and action was on Pezzaniti who, after assessing his options, called all in for his last 243,000.
Lan was clearly overjoyed to be ahead, calling on his cards to hold. There was a jack in the window of a flop which caused him to cheer out loud.
The turn, however, drew 'oohs' from the assembled rail, who had gathered to see the big all-in showdown, as the gave Pezzaniti flush and straight draws.
There was a pause before the river was dealt - and what a river it was. The caused Pezzaniti to celebrate, having hit his flush, but it was all for naught as celebrating equally loudly was Lan who had rivered quads.
