Albertini Doubles Through the Ukrainian

Stephane Albertini doubles up as his fellow French men look on.

Sergii Baranov limped on the button, Phil Hellmuth folded from the small blind, and Stephane moved all in for 920,000. Baranov made a quick call to put the Frenchman at risk.

Baranov: {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Albertini: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

The {A-Spades}{3-Clubs}{8-Spades} flop gave Albertini a big lead with a pair of aces, while the {2-Diamonds} turn left Baranov drawing dead. The meaningless {6-Diamonds} was put out on the river for good measure and the French contingent, of which there are a couple dozen, went wild on the rail.
