Caruso's Blades Cut Down Patel

CPPT Main Event (Day 2)

Players Remaining: 6
Chip Average: 1,400,000
PJ Caruso (Georgetown, MA)
While we haven't reported any of the hands they've played, as we were kind of waiting for the "big one", PJ Caruso and Dilipkumar Patel have exchanged blows both on and off the felt, with each player having a "sense of humor" that clearly plays off of one another.

There's been some tension but it's been mostly just playful batter until now as that tension has boiled over after a recent "big" hand in which Caruso doubled up through Patel [Ad][Ac] versus Patel's [Jd][Jh].

Caruso would open the action and Patel would three-bet to 400,000.

The table would fold and Caruso would four-bet leaving himself just 250,000 chips behind.

Patel would take a minute to think about his decision and then announce "all-in" with Caruso snap calling tabling his "blades".

Patel would need to catch two outs to score the knockout as he had Caruso well covered and he'd pick up more outs as he flopped a gut shot straight draw but would brick out on the turn and river doubling up Caruso.

Caruso would double up to just over the 1,650,000 mark with Patel playing just about the same chip stack.

The blinds and antes went up prior to this hand and we are just under an hour until the dinner break.
