He was the chipleader of the tournament just minutes ago, just slipping into what must have second place moments before the final hand. And now, it's all gone and one player has a truly massive stack.
Charlie Carrel was first to act and raised to 50,000. Big blind Pasquale Grimaldi called and the two both checked on . So far, nothing exciting was happening.
The hit the turn which made Grimaldi bet out 80,000. Carrel raised to, what we believe was, 200,000. Grimaldi answered with a shove and Carrel called all in for 976,000 total. Grimaldi had just 14,000 more than that and was in big trouble!
There wasn't a card Grimaldi could hit, so no big show was made of the completing the board.
Grimaldi was all in blind from the small blind the next hand. As everyone folded, it was once again Carrel, now the big blind, he was facing.
Grimaldi was in the lead but the decided otherwise. Grimaldi was the official bubble of the €10,300 Single-Day High Roller while Carrel was still busy stacking the biggest stack in the room.
