Barbero Stacking A Bunch

Nacho Barbero

We just caught the tail end of a huge double up for Nacho Barbero when it was Barbero's kings against his opponent's sixes on a board of {5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. His opponent was in disbelief: "I can't believe you didn't lay that down."

Without skipping a beat and while still stacking his chips, Barbero raised from under the gun to 1,350. It folded around to the big blind who called.

Both players checked the {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop. The big blind led for 1,600 on the {3-Diamonds} turn and Barbero called. Barbero check called the big blind's bet of 3,500 when the {j-Diamonds} river fell.

The big blind turned over {k-Spades}{2-Hearts} for king-high and Barbero won his second pot in a row with {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} for ace-high.
