Sick Call Crushes Visalli's Hopes, Out Shortly After

KaleGozer • Nível 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Gianfranco Visalli

In a massive clash between Gianfranco Visalli and Frederik Jensen, the latter came out as the winner after spending nearly ten minutes in the tank.

Preflop, Visalli opened to 13,000 from under the gun. Behind him, Jensen reraised and made it 42,000. The Italian made the call, and the two of them saw an innocuous flop of {5-Spades}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts} appear. Visalli checked, Jensen followed up with a bet of 28,000, Visalli check-raised to 68,000 and Jensen called.

After the dealer burned and turned the {8-Clubs}, Visalli wasted no time putting Jensen to the test, and put him all in for 156,000 in a pot of close to 200,000. Jensen thought long and hard, and the clock was eventually called on the Dane.

With just seven seconds left, Jensen slammed a tower of chips into the middle and turned over {8-Spades}{6-Spades}, much to Visalli's disbelief.

"Sick call", muttered Visalli as he turned over {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, looking for one of the only two remaining sevens on the river.

It wasn't. The dealer put out the {3-Clubs}, and Frederik Jensen surged to the top of the standings with more than half a million chips.

Just two hands later, Gianfranco Visalli's remaining chips disappeared as well. Visalli got it in holding {Q-Clubs}{6-Clubs} on a flop of {J-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}, but needed help against Xixiang Luo's {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. No help was found, as the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{A-Spades},

Visalli, who topped the leaderboard for nearly two days, is gone just like that in 47th place.
