Baranov Releases Queens


Sergii Baranov opened for 60,000 under the gun and received calls from Phil Hellmuth and Joseph Cheong in the cutoff and button respectively. The {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop saw Baranov lead out for 90,000, Hellmuth raise to 200,000, and Cheong fold.

Baranov made the call and then check-called a big bet of 300,000 on the {2-Spades}. When the {9-Hearts} peeled off on the river, Baranov checked for a second time and Hellmuth bet 650,000. Baranov thought for a long time before asking Hellmuth if he would show if he folded. Hellmuth said that he would and Baranov folded {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} face up, and the "Poker Brat" tabled {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a rivered straight.
