Preflop Aggression Kicks In

With the stacks around even, we have seen the preflop aggression amp up quite a bit during this last hand. It started with Rocco Palumbo opening the button to 85,000. Nelson Robinson then three-bet to 200,000. Palumbo quickly four-bet to 360,000 and it was back on Robinson. A five-bet to 690,000 and it was back on Palumbo. After a few moments thought, Palumbo six-bet all in. Robinson then snap-folded and Palumbo took down a bunch of chips.

Palumbo again check-called on the {8-Diamonds} turn, this time a bet of 160,000. On the {5-Hearts} river, another check from Palumbo would see Robinson bet 275,000.

Palumbo's pair of kings were too strong for Robinson's pair of nines, with Palumbo raking in the chips.
