November Nine finalist Matt Giannetti started the day off with a loss. The board read when we walked in on a hand between Giannetti and the Frenchman Pascal Leyo. There was 1,200 in the pot and Giannetti bet 1,100 into Leyo who decided to raise to 3,050. Giannetti tanked for a while and called giving is heads up river action.
The river was the and Giannetti checked quickly to his opponent who also decided not to put any extra money into the pot. The American pro instantly mucked his cards before seeing Leyo turn over . We couldn't spot the suit of the deuce Leyo was holding since the dealer mucked the cards right away, but it was either a spade or a club.
With todays structure early losses aren't life threatening and Giannetti will not have to worry just yet.
