Tucker Takes Bite Out of Barbieri

Action started with Charles Tucker under the gun, and he raised it up. Al Barbieri put in a third bet, and everyone folded back to Tucker, who called. The flop came down {k-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}, and Tucker check called a bet from Barbieri. The same happened when the {10-Hearts} hit the turn, and when the {a-Spades} hit the river, Tucker led out. Barbieri immediately slammed the table and shook his head in disbelief. He leaned back in his chair, and kept shaking his head as he looked up at the ceiling. After about 90 seconds of thought, Barbieri flung the call about 10 feet into the air, and into the middle.

Tucker showed {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, and Barbieri slammed the table once again, showing {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a flopped set. After the hand, Tucker is up to 225,000, while Barbieri slips down to 310,000.

Al Barbieri us 310,000 -120,000
Charles Tucker us 225,000 105,000
