“Rocket Launcher Russo”
Frank Russo has been nursing a short stack for several levels but has stayed alive. He recently started saying he brought his “rocket launcher” to zoom back up the chip counts and that he did in a recent all in.
Russo was in trouble with a of Spade, j of Spade, against the a of Diamonds, k of Spade, of Taylor Hart. The flop came k of Diamonds, 10 of Diamonds, q of Diamonds, to give Russo broadway but give Hart a royal fliush draw. The turn was the 8 of Clubs, and the river the 2 of Spade, to miss the flush and give Russo another double as he gradually rockets up the counts.
Frank Russo – 950,000 Taylor Hart – 1,330,000
