Nacho Liberates His Chips

Jose "Nacho" Barbero in action

Jose Ignacio Barbero has slipped to 26,000 in chips after losing a big pot to Chris Tryba.

The action folded to Tryba who raised to 800 from the button, only to see Barbero raise it up out of the big blind, making it 2,500 to go. Tryba called, so off they went heads-up to the flop of {8-Clubs}{2-Spades}{3-Spades}.

Barbero opened for 2,425 and Tryba called before the dealer produced the {Q-Hearts} on the turn. Barbero fired out a second shell worth 3,750 and Tryba thought about it long and hard before making the call to see the river of the {7-Spades}.

This time, Barbero checked, which prompted Tryba to quickly move all in.

Barbero asked for a count (13,475), then cut out the amount to call and looked back down at his stack. It would cost him almost half his stack to call.

"Really, that much?" he said to Tryba. "So sick. I'm guessing you have spades there."

After about three minutes in the tank, he threw his hands up in the air, sighed loudly and then kicked his hand into the muck. "Hit the river there?" he asked Tryba.

"I hit the flop too!" Tryba replied as he raked in the pot. "I didn't think you were ever ahead." Tryba is now up to 30,500 in chips.
