Albini Wins on Sixth Street

Jan_Kores • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

So far, the vast majority of the heads-up pots have been decided on third or fourth street.

One recent exception was a hand in which Jeff Lisandro completed and Steven Albini raised. Lisandro called and they both checked on fourth street before Lisandro fired on fifth. Albini called and fired when Lisandro checked to him on sixth. Lisandro grabbed his board, turned it upside down, and shipped it toward the dealer.

Jeff Lisandro: {X-}{X-} / {5-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{8-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} - fold
Steven Albini: {X-}{X-} / {2-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

Lisandro Takes the Lead

Jan_Kores • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

The first hand of heads-up play saw Steven Albini complete with an ace and Jeff Lisandro defended a queen. Albini fired on fourth and fifth where he made an open pair of tens and Lisandro called both bets. Albini slowed down on sixth street and check-called when Lisandro's board hit a third heart.

Lisandro fired again on the river and Albini called, announcing tens up. Lisandro, however, rolled over a flush and took the chip lead.

Jeff Lisandro: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{J-Clubs} / {Q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Steven Albini: {X-}{X-}{X-} / {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{J-Hearts}

Chris Ferguson Eliminated in 4th Place ($29,999)

Chris Ferguson
Chris Ferguson

Chris Ferguson was the bring-in and Steven Albini completed. Ferguson had only 27,000 and called all in.

Chris Ferguson: {8-Hearts}{2-Hearts} / {2-Diamonds}
Steven Albini: {A-Hearts}{2-Spades} / {7-Clubs}

Ferguson was ahead with split deuces which were also blocking one of Albini's cards. Albini, however, made a pair of sevens on fifth to seize the lead.

Ferguson instantly received an ace for aces up, prompting an "oooh" from the rail. But Albini got another seven on the same street, getting the "ooohs" as well.

Ferguson needed to hit an ace or a deuce to make a boat and survive, but he peeled the {8-Spades} instead. Albini showed a meaningless {6-Clubs} river card as Ferguson headed from the stage.
