EPT Barcelona: Lisandro agony
Down to five
Jeff Lisandro (above) has been busted in sixth place by Phil Ivey in one of those big "OUCH" poker moments.
The Italian thought he had won the monster pot until he saw what was lurking beneath Ivey's card protector.
Here's what happened: With the blinds at 10,000/20,000, Ivey raised to 60,000 and was called by Lisandro. Everyone else got out of the way sharpish, perhaps sensing the danger ahead.
The flop came 5-10-9. Lisandro checked, Ivey bet 80,000 and Lisandro moved all in over the top to be met with an instant call. Lisandro flipped over 9-10 for two pair - enough you would have thought, until Ivey turned his 9-9 for yet another set.
The turn and river bought two fours for Ivey's full house.
Ivey's stack has shot up again, with him and Bjorn Erik Glenne fighting for a clear lead.
Who's won what so far on the final day (euros).
