What a way to loose a tourney, that sure must have been sad for Genovesi, after leading a tourney for so long til the final heads up. I just don't understand why was Kerignard also crying, if he had just won it. Ok, it must have been a very emotional moment, just like the news title says, and crying is also a nice way to show happiness, but not many people use it. So, ananlysing the last hand: four 5's, three 3's, three Aces, against three 9's and two 10's, in terms of outs that would give each one the victory. Although it was in a very strange way (really a movie scene, having the 3 first, telling something bad can happen, and the Ace in the end, showing it really happened the worst), he had more outs than is oponent, and he was already leading the tourney, fair enough!
