Battle of the Big Names

• Level 2: 75-150, 0 ante

And these names are BIG, at least 20 letters or more.

Gerasimos Deres had fired 1,050 on a flop of {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} before Roger Hairabedian min-raised to 2,100. Michail Manolakis then cold-called this bet while the amazingly named Dimitrios Mparmpathanasis opted to fold from the blinds. Deres also called to see the {6-Hearts} on the turn, which didn't seem to change much, though both Deres and Hairabedian both checked across to Manolakis, the Greek player firing out 5,000. Deres folded, as did Hairabedian - the Frenchman flipping {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} face up into the muck.
