Tom Bedell started the day as one of the top ten highest chip stacks but he has just had a setback against European tournament regular Giacomo Maisto. Maisto raised from under the gun and both Bedell (button) and Matt Waxman (BB) called. Our first three cards on the felt were , Waxman checked, Maisto bet 11,000, Bedell called and Waxman folded. The turn was the and Maisto checked to Bedell, who saw a chink of light, and bet 16,000. Maisto made a quick turn call before heading to the river. The card was the and Maisto fired out a 25,000 bet quicker than bullets fly out of Arnie's uzi-nine millimetre!
Bedell hated the bet more than I hate sprouts! He sat back, put his hand on his head and let out an exasperated sigh, "I have to call," said Bedell.
Maisto flipped over and Bedell tapped the felt in recognition before mucking his hand.
