We haven't seen a pot today like the one Sam Chartier just won. Stephane Albertini raised under the gun to 500 to start off the action. Chartier was in the under-the-gun-plus-one position and three-bet to 1,400. The action got folded to Dan Kelly who four-bet to 5,000, after which it got folded back to Albertini. Both Albertini and Chartier called giving us a huge pot preflop.
The flop brought out on which Albertini went all in straight away. Chartier came over the top and Kelly put in his chips as well. A total of 12 cards got turned over and we managed to get all of them down.
Chartier had the bottom wrap and a nut flush draw against Kelly who had aces and the high end of an open-ended straight draw. Albertini had the same straight draw as Kelly but also top pair, a back door flush draw and a gutshot to a higher straight. A whole lot of things to look out for and the on the turn gave Albertini a flush draw as well.
Kelly was rooting for a blank so his aces could hold while the other two players needed help. Help came for Chartier who hit his straight with the on the river giving him this massive pot with a six-high straight.
Kelly was left behind with 9,000 chips and we said goodbye to Albertini who got knocked out. Chartier has the chip lead for now but with crazy action happening all over the place we expect some other players to rise pretty quickly.
