Sometimes its just not your day. Shortly after losing most of his stack when pocket queens out flopped his pocket aces, Grippo got the rest in with pocket aces once again, only to see them fail him for a second time.
We caught up with the action preflop after Grippo had reraised his opponent Takashi Ogura to 5,200. Ogura called and the two saw a flop of Q82. Grippo bet, Ogura moved all in and Grippo called with AA.
Ogura revealed J10 for the straight and flush draw and it immediately came in when the 9 hit the turn. The meaningless river card was the 8 and Grippo quickly packed up his stuff and exited the room. Ogura now sits with 52,000 in chips.
