Baranov Takes Chip Lead

Joseph Cheong opened from early position with a raise to 40,000. Stephane Albertini called from the next seat over and it folded to Sergii Baranov who three-bet to 120,000 from the cutoff. Both Cheong and Albertini called.

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{J-Hearts} and there were two checks to Baranov. He fired out 200,000 and Cheong quickly released his hand. After about fifteen more seconds, Albertini decided to let his hand go as well, awarding Baranov the pot.
