Cecelia Pescaglini has lost a third of her stack here early on after a clash with Alfonso Amendola.
We joined the action on a flop and saw Amendola fire a bet of 2,700 from under the gun, a bet that Pescaglini pondered for a few moments before making the call. The turn was the and Amendola bet again, except this time he reduced its size and set the price to play at 1,600. Pescaglini took the bait and quickly called.
The river was the and after a 30-second pause Amendola bet 3,500 sending Pescaglini into deep thought. She sat riffling black 25 chips for over a minute, all the time muttering under her breath before deciding she was beaten and mucked her hand.
Amendola now has 39,200 chips to go with his large, unlit cigar he is holding over on Table 6.
