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

Bryn Kenney Bubbles Day 8

Bryn Kenney - 28th place

Bryn Kenney is our Day 8 bubble boy after being eliminated in dramatic fashion in back-to-back hands to leave us with our final 27 players.

Kenney started the action with a raise to 300,000 from under the gun with Pascal LeFrancois making the call in the big blind.

The flop landed {5-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{8-Clubs} and LeFrancois checked it over to Kenney who made a continuation bet of 400,000. LeFrancois made the call. The turn brought the {K-Hearts} and LeFrancois checked again. Kenney fired a second barrel worth 480,000 and again LeFrancois made the call as a big pot was brewing.

The river fell the {J-Spades} and following a third check from LeFrancois, Kenney verbalized his bet of 1.3 million, however LeFrancois thought he had heard "all in" as he instantly called and tabled {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a set of eights. LeFrancois didn't realize that he'd left Kenney with just under one million chips behind as Kenney showed {K-Spades}{J-Clubs} for two pair.

"Sick runners..." sighed Kenney as he then chuckled that he was now freerolling after LeFrancois' mistake.

Well, the freeroll lasted just one more hand.

LeFrancois raised to 300,000 and Kenney moved all in for 850,000. LeFrancois snap-called and flipped {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} as Kenney would need some help with his {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}.

The board fell {A-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Kenney couldn't find a deuce to save himself as he is eliminated from the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event in 28th place.
