Stephane Albertini raised to 80,000 from the button and received calls from Sergii Baranov and Phil Hellmuth in the small and big blinds respectively. The former proceeded to lead out for 200,000 on the flop. Hellmuth folded, Albertini raised to 490,000, and Baranov called.
The turn saw Baranov check-call Albertini's all-in shove or approximately 450,000, and the cards were turned up:
Baranov had flopped top pair, but it was still behind the pocket rockets of Albertini. The river changed nothing, and the French contingent on the rail went wild for their last hope of keeping the title in France.
