Jose Manuel Gonzalez limped from the button and Pedro Marques did so from the small blind while Ermanno Di Nicola was forced all-in for 250,000 in the big blind. Marques check-called a bet worth 600,000 on the flop and check-folded the turn when Gonzalez bet once more.
Ermanno Di Nicola:
Jose Manuel Gonzalez:
Di Nicola was drawing dead already and the river was a mere formality as the Italian had to settle for €166,120, making the most out of the short stack laddering.
Both remaining players are now taking a short break and potentially discuss an ICM deal.
