Level 6: 200/500 (500)
In two hands over a short period, Roberto Barone has chipped up to about 50,000. In the first hand, Barone limped and got two callers to the flop of 3♣A♣T♦. Action checked to cutoff Athir Ali who fired 1,100. Big blind (and runner-up from the spring series) Junyu Liu got out of the way, but Barone flatted to the 7♠ turn. Barone check-raised from 1,100 to 4,000 and after some time deep in thought, Ali folded to bring Barone up to about 32k.
Shortly after I returned to the table to see Barone all in against Dieter Victor with Victor deep in the tank on the river of a board reading 9♥6♦4♥6♣5♠. He eventually mucked, then slammed the table in disgust when Barone showed pocket deuces as he was collecting another chipup.
Athir Ali – 30,000
Roberto Barone – 50,000
Dieter Victor – 40,000
