Albertini Ships Half Of His Stack to Baranov


Phil Hellmuth had the button. Christopher Brammer got out of the way and Sergii Baranov made it 60,000. It folded all of the way around to Stephane Albertini's big blind and he called.

The flop was {4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} and Albertini check-called a bet of 90,000. The {J-Diamonds} fell on the turn and Albertini checked a second time. Baranov moved 120,000 into the center. Albertini dipped into his stack and came out with a check-raise to 295,000. Baranov wasted no time calling and the {4-Spades} paired the board on the river.

Albertini checked and Baranov bet 300,000. Albertini went into the tank for over a minute.

"You have king-queen?" said Albertini, trying to figure out the hand.

Eventually Albertini gave up and let go of his hand. Baranov showed {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for trip fours and took down the pot. He is now over four million in chips while Albertini has fallen to 670,000.
