Balber Finds a Lucky River; Hu Takes a Hit

Norton Balber opened in middle position to 30,000 before the action folded to Anthony Hu on the button who put in a three-bet to the turn of 110,000. It folded back to Balber who said “300 more”. A bit of confusion ensued as 300k more put Balmer all in. Hu patiently waited for a count and then quickly called all in which was about 390,000. 

Norton Balber: k of Spade, q of Spade, Anthony Hu:  

The flop came 8 of Hearts, j of Spade, 10 of Diamonds, and Hu was looking good. The 7 of Hearts, turn landed and all seemed safe. Until the 9 of Spade, landed on the river giving Balber the stone cold nuts and taking a huge chunk of Hu’s stack.

Balber was pushed the pot and now rockets up the leaderboard.

Norton Balber – 875,000 Anthony Hu – 600,000
