Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em

Mucking the Winner

• Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

On the turn of a {10-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {5-Hearts} {10-Clubs} board, we joined the action as Gianluca Speranza put out a bet of 48,000 into a pot of just more than that. His opponent, Andrew Hinrichsen, took pause, then raised the minimum to 96,000. Speranza made the call.

The {Q-Hearts} arrived on the river, and the two men were content to check it down. At showdown, Speranza just went ahead and mucked, and that was probably a mistake. You have to show two cards to win the pot in WSOP events, and Hinrichsen reluctantly turned over his airball {6-Spades} {7-Hearts} in order to claim the chips.

You should have seen the look on Speranza's face.
