Merendino escapes on the river

We arrived at table 9 when there was already around 20,000 in the middle. Merendino put out a heavy bet of 20,500 on a Q 3 10 flop. On which Montagnolli, which sounds Italian as well, but Austrian on paper, put all his chips into the middle. He got quickly called as it wasn't that much more as the initial raise of Merendino.

Merendino K Q

Montagnolli K K

The turn came A giving plenty of shoppertunities, and with the J on the river, both players made a straight. Merendino laughed out loud and Montagnolli must have cried a bit from inside. On to the next!
