Not long ago, we Saw Al Barbieri with only 19,000 in chips before we took a walk around the orange section to gather some counts. Once we returned thought, we saw Barbieri, who’s seat is as close as possible to our reporting desk with quite a few more chips so we asked him what happened.
According to Barbieri, the player to his right raised to 350 and he flat-called as did the button. On the flop with two hearts, the original raiser checked to Barbieri who bet 1,100. The button called but the first player check-raised to 3,500. Barbieri just called and the button folded.
On the turn, Barbieri called his opponent’s bet of 8,000. The river was a heart that paired the board with a card on the flop and it was checked to Barbieri who moved in for his last 10,000 or so. The player called and Barbieri showed for the nut flush which was good to double him up.
