Mike Azzaro, Day 2 Level 20

Kenny Han opened the pot to 35k from the hijack and was flatted by Jim Lillis on the button. Azzaro 3-bet to 120k from the small blind with ~320k behind. Han made the call and Lillis folded making it a heads-up affair.

Flop: 6♣10♥A♣ Pot: ~300k


Turn: 9♦

Azzaro now continued his aggression with a bet of 120k. Han called.

River: K♦ Pot: ~540k

Azzaro moved all-in for just over 180k. Han quickly folded commenting “I don’t beat anything”. Azzaro moves up to ~720k after the hand while Han is still working with a big stack of over 1M.
