Fabio Peluso opened to 450,000 from middle position, Lucas Scafini called in the cutoff, and Jacob Amsellem defended the big blind.
The dealer spread the flop and action checked to Scafini. He bet 600,000, Amsellem called, and Peluso raised to 1,775,000. Scafini called and Amsellem folded.
Both players checked the turn to the river. Peluso checked, Scafini slid forward a bet of 2,800,000, and Peluso called fairly quickly.
Scafini tabled for a boat to take the sizable pot in one of the first hands of the day as Peluso mucked.
