Anthony Dianaty

You may not recognize him, but that’s Tampa regular Anthony Dianaty. He earned his entry in this $1,650 Main Event via Wednesday’s $200 satellite and is putting that entry to use here in Day 1B.

He drew a tough table with the aforementioned Quentin Jones and Witold Wassik as well as 2004 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Raymer. Dianaty recently clashed with the former champ and came out on the good end of a river raise.

The board laid Kh4s2c4c4h and Dianaty lead for 1,600. The action was heads-up and Raymer raised to 5,200. Dianaty sat still thinking for a few moments, then called the raise. Raymer mucked his cards conceding the pot to Dianaty who flipped over 9c9h for fours full. Dianaty took the pot and grew to comfortably above starting stack.
