Speranza Leads Final Table; Romanello Chasing Triple Crown

Welcome to Day 3 of Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em. It's the final table day and the second one of the 2011 World Series of Poker, meaning we should crown our second bracelet winner today.

Heading into the final table, Gianluca Speranza leads the charge with 757,000 in chips. Top prize is €148,030 and he's the man to catch. He's trailed by Australian Andrew Hinrichsen, who finished 23rd in the WSOP Main Event this year for over $300,000. Behind him is Roberto Romanello and he'll be going for poker's Triple Crown today; already having won an EPT title and a WPT title.

Gregory Lejolivet was all in on the turn with the board reading {J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} against Gianluca Speranza, the start-of-the-day chip leader. Lejolivet held the {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, but was up against the full house for Speranza with the {6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

Needing an eight on the river, Lejolivet wouldn't find it when the {A-Clubs} fell and he was eliminated in ninth place. Speranza is now over 800,000 in chips.

Guigon Gets It In There

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 500 ante

Roberto Romanello opened the pot under the gun, and Bernard Guigon stuck his last 45,500 chips into the pot on a three-bet shove. Romanello quickly called with {8-Hearts} {8-Clubs}, and Guigon needed to win a race with {A-Clubs} {J-Spades} to stay afloat.

The {Q-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} flop gave the at-risk player another four outs to the double, but the turn {7-Hearts} was a waste of a card. The river delivered the {K-Clubs}, though, the Broadway card for Guigon. Just like that, he's doubled to 104,500, knocking Romanello down around 200,000.

Jacks Good for Baudry

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 500 ante

From under the gun, Eric Baudry raised to 13,000. His only customer was Nabil Nedjai in middle position and they took the flop of {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} before proceeding. Baudry checked and Nedjai bet 18,000. Baudry called.

The turn card was the {9-Hearts} and Baudry checked. Nedjai checked behind.

The river card was the {K-Diamonds} and completed a possible flush draw. Both players checked.

Baudry tabled the {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and Nedjai mucked his hand.

Bruno Getting Freaky with Ace High

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 500 ante

From under the gun, Nabil Nedjai limped in and action folded to Tarcisio Bruno on the button. He raised to 15,000. Play folded back to Nedjai and he called.

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Nedjai checked. Bruno bet 20,000 and Nedjai called.

The turn was the {4-Spades} and Nedjai bet out 50,000. Bruno raised all in for 106,000. Nedjai tanked for a bit and then tossed in his hand. Bruno showed an ace-high bluff with the {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and scooped the pot.
