Gianluca Mattia got the preflop betting round started with a raise to 350 from middle position, a raise that found three callers. Two to Mattia's left was Enrico Tau, he called, and to Tau's direct left was Casey Kastle who also called. The trio of callers was completed when Bastien Lebel tossed in the extra chips from the big blind.
The action checked to Tau on a flop and when the action was on Tau he laid out a bet of 625. Kastle called, Lebel folded and Mattia stuck along and made the call.
Mattia then came out firing on the turn but Tau did not believe him and almost instantly made the call. Kastle, who has a frozen (not literally) iPad on his knee, had a quick count of the active stacks and then folded.
The completed the board and Mattia now checked. Tau did not let up the aggression though and bet an enticing amount of 2,250. Mattia looked at his opponent over the top of his over-sized sunglasses before relinquishing his hand.
