Mats Albertsen

Mats Albertsen raised to 250,000 with {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} from the button and Nicolai Aubert called with {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}.

Both players checked the {8-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} flop.

The {j-Diamonds} came on the turn and it was an action card giving Albertsen the straight and Aubert top two pair. Albertsen bet 250,000. Aubert raised to 650,000 and Albertsen called.

Albertsen fired out for 1,700,000 after the {4-Hearts} came on the river. Aubert called and Albertsen was back in the lead after the hand.
