We always love the excitement of a double elimination, and Max Steinberg just told us about one that involved the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Ryan Riess and the 2006 WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Madsen.
As Steinberg told it, the hand happened last level when Riess opened the action with a raise to 350. Madsen called from the button, Bryn Kenney came along from the big blind, and three players saw a flop of rainbow. Kenney checked, Riess bet 750, and Madsen made the call. Kenney then woke up with a check-raise to 2,100, Reiss three-bet to 4,000, and Madsen moved in for 5,500 total. Kenney then moved all in over the top and Riess called off his remaining chips.
Kenney was in the lead with a flopped two pair, and it held as a blanked on the turn followed by a on the river.
Bryn Kenney, Ryan Reiss and Jeff Madsen 3 way all in, somehow Bryn has the best hand with bottom two on a rainbow board and holds.Follow @MaxJSteinberg
