Bardah Tops One Million

Posted 2012-06-23 GMT-6

After a Ronnie Bardah open from the cutoff, Vincent Gironda defended his big blind, then check-raised Bardah following the {2-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop. Bardah responded with a three-bet, and Gironda called.

The turn brought the {K-Clubs} and Gironda checked. Bardah bet and Gironda called. The river was the {7-Hearts}, and again Gironda checked, Bardah bet, and Gironda called.

Bardah turned over {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts} for kings, and Gironda mucked. That one carries Bardah up over a million and back into the chip lead over second-place Gironda.

Hans Minocha - 6th place

It folded to Vincent Gironda in the cutoff who peered across the table, looking over Hans Minocha sitting in the big blind with a short stack. Gironda raised, then Marco Johnson made it three bets from the button. It folded to Minocha who checked his cards, then decided to reraise himself, a bet that committed his entire stack of 59,000. Both Gironda and Johnson called.

The flop came {3-Spades}{A-Spades}{10-Spades}. Gironda checked, Johnson bet, and Gironda called. The turn brought a fourth spade, the {8-Spades}, and both players checked. They again checked the {8-Diamonds} river.

All three players had made flushes. Minocha had {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}, Gironda had {A-}{5-Spades}, and Johnson had the best of the three with {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades} to drag the main pot plus the small side pot. Meanwhile, Hans Minocha's supporters gave him a round of applause to acknowledge his sixth-place finish.
