There was about a half-million chips in the pot when we walked up to a 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 had flopped top pair, but he was still in a big hole against Figueiredo's .
How to climb out of a big hole quickly. Kenney improved to three queens, leaving his opponent dead to two outs. The river 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.
