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

Habib Jacks Up Stack

Shamus
Hasan Habib

Following a {J-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{J-Spades} flop, Bryn Kenney bet 165,000, and Hasan Habib called. The turn brought the {A-Spades}. Kenney checked this time, Habib bet 200,000, and Kenney called.

The river was the {8-Clubs}. Kenney checked again, Habib bet 400,000, and Kenney called one more time.

Habib showed {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} -- he'd flopped quads -- and Kenney mucked. Habib moves to 2.6 million on that one. We assume he wins some sort of meat snack prize as well.

Kenney would soon be involved in another hand with Vern Keller in which the latter was all in before the flop for his last 320,000 or so. In that one, Kenney had opened with a raise from the button, and Keller reraised all in from the big blind with {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Kenney called with his {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, and binked a seven on the river to eliminate Keller. Kenney now has 2.68 million.
