Justin Liberto

Justin Liberto was on the button and raised to 125,000, receiving a call from Jason Dennis who defended his big blind. The flop came {4-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Dennis checked to Liberto, who made a continuation-bet of 160,000. Dennis called.

The turn was {k-Spades} and Dennis checked again. Liberto fired a second barrel of 355,000 and Dennis check-raised to 900,000. Liberto thought for a bit and called, bringing the river {5-Spades}.

"All in," announced Dennis. Liberto quickly dropped a stack onto the table and both players triumphantly turned over their hands.

Dennis' {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs} had turned two pair but Liberto's {k-Hearts}{5-Hearts} hit a better kings up on the river.

"Oh man!" responded Dennis in agonizing fashion after seeing Liberto's hand. Liberto's stack was totaled to be 2.155 million and the pot was made right before being shipped his way.
