Kerr the Short Stack, Gets a Little Shorter

Shamus
Paul Kerr
Paul Kerr

David Peters limped in from the small blind, and the action was on Paul Kerr in the big blind. Kerr held a fist over his mouth and coughed -- as he often does before acting -- then checked behind.

The flop came {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. Peters bet 85,000, and Kerr called. The turn was the {9-Hearts}, and this time Peters checked. Kerr bet 175,000, and Peters called. The river then brought the {Q-Clubs}. Peters checked quickly, and Kerr waited about 30 seconds before checking as well.

Peters tabled {K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, and Kerr mucked. Peters is back around the 5-million chip mark again, still close to even with Marcel Vonk. Meanwhile, Kerr is looking up at both with his 1.11 million.

Peters Takes Some from Jessen

Shamus

David Peters -- both under the gun and in the cutoff at the four-handed table -- opened with a raise to 130,000, and it folded around to Nathan Jessen who called from the big blind.

The flop came {2-Spades}{10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Jessen checked, Peters bet 110,000, and Jessen called. The turn brought the {3-Clubs}, and both players checked.

The river was the {3-Hearts}, putting a second pair on the board. Jessen checked, then looked at Peters as he carved out a bet of 330,000. Jessen thought a bit, then called.

Peters showed {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, and Jessen mucked. Peters moves to about 4.7 million -- very close to Marcel Vonk at the moment -- while Jessen slips to about 1.1 million.

Paul Kerr opened the pot with a 140,000-chip raise on the button. Marcel Vonk released the small blind and Nathan Jessen moved all in from the big. Kerr tanked and eventually called the additional 625,000 chips.

Showdown

Kerr: {k-Spades}{6-Spades}

The {4-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Clubs} board gave Jensen a full double up, is now up to 1,530,000 chips. Kerr slipped to 1,125,000 chips.

Peters on the Move

Shamus

David Peters has added more to his stack here in Level 27 and has retaken the chip lead from Marcel Vonk.

Just now Peters won another small pot versus Paul Kerr. Peters limped in from the small blind, and Kerr checked the BB. The flop came {9-Clubs}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, and Peters bet 65,000. Kerr called. Both checked the {Q-Spades} turn. Then the river brought the {A-Hearts} and a bet of 210,000 from Peters, to which Kerr quickly folded.

Peters is edging up toward 5 million now, just a bit ahead of Vonk. Kerr has 1.89 million.
