Espo Catches a Card


Stephane Albertini raised to 135,000 to open the pot, and John Esposito three-bet all in for 785,000 total. When it came back to Albertini, he wasted no time calling, and his {8-Spades} {8-Diamonds} was poised for the knockout as the short stack tabled {4-Clubs} {4-Hearts}.

The {K-Spades} {2-Clubs} {6-Clubs} flop wasn't much help for the at-risk Esposito, but the turn {5-Clubs} opened up a world of outs. He needed to find a four, a three, or any club to stay alive, and the river {7-Clubs} will do just nicely. "Yeah, baby!" Esposito yelled as his rail erupted in celebration. Their guy has doubled up to about 1.75 million, still about a million back of Albertini.
