Cecilia Pescaglini's stack yo-yos like, well, a yo-yo whenever she enters a tournament and today is no different. After being as low at 20,000 she is now up to 36,000.
Pescaglini opened the betting, Rodrigo Dos Santos Caprioli called next to act and when the action folded to Roger Hairabedian in the big blind he called too.
The trio shared a flop, Hairabedian checked, Pescaglini made a continuation bet of 1,250, Caprioli called but Hairabedian check-raised to 3,500. Pescaglini made the call but Caprioli folded.
The saw Hairabedian move all in, covering Pescaglini. The Italian went into the tank for over a minute before making the call.
The dealer put the on the river and Pescaglini's pair of nines held. She burst into Italian saying something that we think said, "How about those apples," as she stacked her new found chips.
