Alba’s House Crushes Opponent

• Level 1: 25-50, 0 ante

On the turn with the board reading {8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, Peter Alba faced a bet of 400 from the woman seated to his left. He popped it up to 1,600, she made the call, and they saw the river bring the {4-Clubs}.

Alba announced he was all in and his opponent quickly made the call. Alba turned over {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} for a full house, and it took a few seconds to see his opponent's {6-Spades}{5-Hearts} for a losing straight. Having fewer chips than Alba to start the hand, she was eliminated just before the end of the first level.
