Roller Coaster For Boeree

Action folded around to Stephane Albertini who raised to 22,000 from the cutoff. Liv Boeree, in the seat next door, made it 57,000 from the button.

Timothy Adams thought for a moment from the small blind and Curt Kohlberg folded his big blind. Albertini counted out his chips before finally making a four-bet to an unknown amount. Boeree responded by announcing all in and Albertini snapped her off.

Albertini: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Boeree: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The board fell {J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Spades}{A-Clubs} and Albertini's kings were able to hold and score him a double up. He's now sitting on 470,000.

The next hand Boeree got her remaining roughly 175,000 all in before the flop holding {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Boeree was racing against Curt Kohlberg's {A-}{Q-}. Kohlberg failed to improve on the {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Boeree was able to double up to about 380,000.
