Event #10: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Barbaro Makes Sick River Call

We came in on the river of this hand between John Kim and Pokerstars Team Pro Jose Nacho Barbero. There was at least 50,000 in the pot before the river.

The board read {J-Spades}{2-Clubs}{K-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Kim checked in the big blind. Nacho bet 15,000 from the button and after about 3 minutes of tanking Kim re-raised to 54,00 on the very dangerous board. Nacho didn't take too long and certainly wasn't convinced Kim had much because he made the call flipping over {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} for the low end of the straight. His read and call were right though as Kim showed {K-}{8-} for one pair.

Barbero is now in our top ten with 209,000 and Kim has fallen down to 65,000
