Happy days for Michele Guerrini – although you wouldn’t know it from his placid, disinterested expression.
Guerrini bet a roughly pot-sized 15k bet on the river of a Th 4d 3h 3s 5d board, his sleepy visage giving nothing away. His opponent Magnus Telle, who had previously checked, must have thought he read weakness on Guerrini’s face as after a brief pause he made the call – but he soon found that he’d been mistaken.
Guerrini: 3c-4c for a full house
Telle is down to 9k, a scowl of frustration on his face. Guerrini is up to over 50k, his expression inscrutable.
