Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Albertini Moves Up Before the Break

• Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

From the last featured table counts, you can see a big upward trend from Stephane Albertini, and it happened on the last hand before the break.

David Sands was the preflop raiser, and his 135,000-chip raise was called by Albertini, John Hewitt, and John Esposito, the latter coming along from the big blind. The four men took a {7-Spades} {6-Hearts} {10-Clubs} flop, and Albertini bet 315,000. Hewitt called while the other two ducked out, and the {5-Spades} dropped on the turn. Albertini checked to allow his opponent to bet 650,000 before he check-raised to 1.430 million. It worked. The fold came, and Albertini raked the pot to move his way up to the count you see.
