Kiletto was definitively not thinking he would make that call. But with a pair of 88's, being leading (although the difference of chips in this case, would bring a difference of 4-1 in case Kiletto wins the hand), Giannetti risked well. I think that, when he saw his opponents hands, he may have give a big breathe of relief, althoguh those suited could have ruined all. But that didn't happened, and the star of all the event become crowned: fair!

Matt Giannetti's latest WPT title was not only his second on the tour, but the second time he'd broken the heart of a female player. Having defeated Cecilia Pescaglini in 2011 at WPT Malta, Giannetti thwarted another prospective female champion in the form of Lily Kiletto.
