Sevens For Sergii

• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth had the button and all three players invested 230,000 before the flop.

The flop was {7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and all three players checked. The {3-Hearts} turned and Stephane Albertini led for 285,000. Sergii Baranov called and Hellmuth folded. Both checked the {8-Clubs} river and Albertini showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades} for ace-high. Baranov tabled {7-Spades}{6-Spades} for a pair of sevens and took the pot.

High Fives

[user153638]

Sergii Baranov raised to 120,000 from the button and received calls from both blinds. The {6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} flop brought checks by all three players, and then Hellmuth checked the {Q-Clubs} turn. Stephane Albertini took the opportunity to bet 180,000 from the big blind, Baranov folded, and Hellmuth check-called.

Both players then returned to checking on the {5-Spades} river and Hellmuth revealed {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, which was no good against Albertini's {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.

Small One For Hellmuth

• Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Stephane Albertini had the button. He raised to 130,000 and received a call from Phil Hellmuth in the big blind. The flop came {2-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and both players checked. The {9-Diamonds} turned and Hellmuth fired 240,000. Albertini got rid of his cards that the "Poker Brat" took down the pot.

Kings Full for Baranov

[user153638]

Stephane Albertini limped on the button and Sergii Baranov did the same from the small blind. Phil Hellmuth checked his option for the big and it was three-way action to the {6-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop. Baranov was first to act and led out for 90,000, which only Hellmuth called.

Both players checked the {6-Clubs} turn, and then Baranov bet 200,000 on the {K-Spades} river. Hellmuth snap-called but mucked when Baranov rolled over {K-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for a full house.

Albertini Five-Bet Shoves

Sergii Baranov made it 130,000 from the button and Phil Hellmuth called. Stephane Albertini three-bet to 335,000 from the big blind only to have Baranov four-bet to 710,000. Hellmuth got out of the way and Albertini quickly came over the top with a five-bet all in for 1.455 million more.

Baranov thought for about ninety seconds before folding, awarding Albertini the pot and pushing him just over 3 million in chips.

"I Started with a Big Hand, and I'm Trying to Finish it with a Big Hand"

[user153638]

A limped pot saw all three players take a flop of {7-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and Sergii Baranov led out for 130,000 from the small blind. Stephane Albertini folded from the big, and Phil Hellmuth raised to 400,000. "I started with a big hand, and I'm trying to finish it with a big hand," Hellmuth said.

Baranov was a believer and folded his hand, which prompted Hellmuth to show {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}. "I limped with nine," the 12-time bracelet winner said with a proud smile on his face.
