Baybars Doubles in Massive Cooler

dsalituro • Level 1: Blinds 300-600, 600 ante
Vasili Firsau

With stacks so deep, all-in confrontations have been hard to come by so far on Day 1b until Halil Baybars and Vasili Firsau just tangled in a massive pot.

Baybars had a raise of around 15,000 in front of him from the button before the flop and Firsau, in the small blind, called to see the {5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs} flop.

Both players checked as the {8-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Firsau checked again and Baybars bet 15,000. Firsau came back with a raise to 41,000 and Baybars immediately moved all in for around 75,000.

Firsau called just as quickly and turned over {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for the turned set. Baybars, though, showed {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} for a flopped set as Firsau shot out of his seat.

The river came the {j-Clubs} and Firsau could only laugh as he was forced to hand over most of his stack.
