Marcello Simonetti is known to be a patient and tight player and he has gone deep in many events. He was part of the five way chop that took place in this weekend’s marquee event, the Playground200. He has been super patient on the final table tonight waiting for the right spots, and his chip stack was starting to take a hit and he needed to do something before it was too late..
Lucky for him, he woke up with a pocket pair and moved all in. John Rathbun also woke up with a pair and made the call, hoping that he might be flipping against an Ace or maybe some Broadway cards. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.
The board stayed clean for Marcello and his 310,000 stack more than doubled.
