Bord Doubles!

James Bord

Hand #216: Fabrizio Baldassari raised from the button to 215,000. James Bord quickly reraised to 630,000 from the big blind. Baldassari reached for chips, but then paused and took his hand away before thinking for a minute. He then reached back and slid out a big reraise to 2.215 million. Bord folded and Baldassari flashed his cards back at the hole card camera and then slid them face down into the middle, scooping the pot right after.

Hand #217: Baldassari got a walk in the big blind from Bord.

Hand #218: Baldassari limped in from the button before Bord raised from the big blind to 330,000. Baldassari looked at the dealer and then announce, "I'm all in," motioning with his hands. Bord snapped him off.

Bord: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Baldassari: {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}

Despite having the worst of it right now, Baldassari was plenty live going to the flop. There was a long pause and then the dealer was allowed to go ahead. The flop came down {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, keeping Bord ahead, but giving the Italian a gutshot to go along with his live cards.

The turn brought the {3-Diamonds} and didn't do much. It did allow for a chop if a deuce fell off. The river then completed the board with the {4-Diamonds} and Bord's hand held. He doubled up to 6.41 million and is now in the lead.
