Gussoni Minimizes the Damage

The following hand occurred moments ago on the PokerGO livestream.

With around 4,000 in the pot on a turn of     , the small blind Robert Gussoni was in a world of hurt with    for top two pair up against Bogdan Munteanu, who was holding    for top set.

Gussoni checked and then called after his opponent bet 3,000. The river was a harmless   and the small blind again checked. Munteanu bet 7,500, forcing Gussoni into a decision to call or raise. He wisely went for just a call and then found out the bad news, but it could have been a much worse outcome for him.
