Hand #196 - Minieri
We're seeing more walkies than Crufts at the moment, but with Dario Minieri on the button, we see some action, the Italian making it 160,000 to play. It's enough to lap up the blinds and antes.

Oh lordy me
Hand #191 - Minieri
Fischer raises to 180,000, Minieri-all-in-Fischer-call. It's that fast.
Dario is putting on his coat.
It's a dangerous one, and there are a few "oohs" -- everyone holds their breath.
Turn: -- Fischer looks as though he's fighting to hold back nausea.
River: -- the Minieri side of the stage erupts in absolute madness.
In yet another unlikely outdraw scenario, Minieri doubles up to 3 million, giving him back the chip lead.
