Sets All Around

We caught up to see three players see a flop of {2-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades}. There were two checks to Team PokerStars Pro Jose "Nacho" Barbero and he led out with a bet of 775 only to have Marco Tognelli raise to 2,500. Zachary Korik called the raise and Barbero stuck around as well.

The {10-Spades} dropped down on the turn and Tognelli checked. Korik decided to fire out on this street, betting 5,100. Barbero flat called and Tognelli called as well.

The trio saw the {7-Diamonds} complete the board and Tognelli checked again. Kork fired 8,550 and Barbero went into the tank for well over three minutes before folding. Tognelli called and showed {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a set of three. Korik tabled {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for a set of tens and Barbero slammed his hand on the table.

"I folded a set of fours!" said Barbero, upset that Korik over-called on the flop to hit his ten on the turn.

Korik was able to scoop up this massive pot and is currently sitting on 53,000 in chips.
