Barbosa Turns Flush, Stacks Chips

Level 14 : 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

With {5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} on the board, Cleiton Barbosa bet 15,000 from the small blind, and his early-position opponent went all in for 130,000.

Barbosa made the call.

Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Cleiton Barbosa: {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Barbosa's flush was still not in the clear, with his opponent having plenty of river outs. The river came a harmless {7-Spades}, however, and Barbosa is up over the 300k mark in the aftermath, while his opponent is out of chips.

Colache Gets Paid on the River

Level 14 : 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Renata Colache opened to 6,000 from the hijack, the cutoff three-bet to 18,000, and Colache called.

Colache check-called a 12,500 bet on the {4-Clubs}{a-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. Both players then checked the {k-Hearts} turn.

Colache bet 35,000 on the {q-Spades} river, the cutoff raised all in, having Colache covered, and Colache made the call, putting her last 30,000 in the pot.

The cutoff showed {a-Hearts}{k-}, but saw it was no good against Colache's {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, good for the broadway straight.

Studdard Doubles Up

Level 13 : 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante

The under-the-gun player opened to 5,500, another early position player three-bet to 20,000, and Darius Studdard four-bet all in for 48,000.

The under-the-gun player folded, and the three-bettor called, having Studdard covered.

Darius Studdard: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Board: {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

Studdard found a king on the flop, and the pair held through the runout, securing the double up.
