Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

MBN to Be Bryn Kenney

There was about a half-million chips in the pot when we walked up to a {10-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} flop. Paulo Figueiredo moved all in for 498,000, and Bryn Kenney called with his covering stack to put his opponent at risk. Kenney's {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} had flopped top pair, but he was still in a big hole against Figueiredo's {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds}.

Turn: {Q-Spades}

How to climb out of a big hole quickly. Kenney improved to three queens, leaving his opponent dead to two outs. The river {7-Diamonds} was no help at all, and Paulo Figueiredo has been cut down.

Kenney, courtesy of that lucky turn card, is all the way up to 3.38 million now and a dangerous force at his table.
