Justin Liberto

Dwane Collard opened to 100,000 in the cutoff and was called by Justin Liberto, defending his big blind. The flop came {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} and Liberto checked to Collard, who continuation-bet 80,000. Liberto called.

The turn came {j-Spades} and Liberto checked again. Collard fired a second barrel for 190,000 and Liberto called again, bringing the river {8-Spades} where both players checked to take the hand to showdown.

Liberto showed {8-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, pairing his eight after failing to complete his flopped flush draw, and Collard sent his cards to the muck.
