Rocco Palumbo raised to 30,000 in middle position and Steve Wilkie called in the hijack. Action folded to Justin Liberto in the big blind and he called as well.

The flop was {3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Liberto led out for 27,000. Palumbo and Wilkie both called, bringing the turn {9-Diamonds}. Liberto bet another 48,000 and Palumbo called, with Wilkie letting his hand go behind.

The river came {6-Hearts} and Liberto fired for a third time, betting 115,000. Palumbo quickly let his hand go.

Meanwhile, Mike Kenny just doubled through Dwane Collard on the adjacent table with ace-queen on a queen high board.

"He's impossible to kill," said a tablemate as the pot was being shipped to Kenny.
