Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Kenney Moving Up

Bryn Kenney began the day with just 10,000 chips -- a third of his starting stack -- and he's now in the hunt for the chip lead.

Michael Mizrachi led the betting on a {2-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} flop, but he slowed down on the {4-Hearts} turn. Kenney took his cue to bet 12,400 at the pot, and Mizrachi didn't waste much time calling. The {10-Clubs} filled out the board, and Kenney kept the heat on with another bet worth 22,800. Mizrachi thought it over for a good while, but he eventually dropped the call into the pot.

Kenney's {A-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} was a medium-strength hand, but it was good enough to take down the pot. Mizrachi flashed one card (possibly an eight of his own), then mucked his cards to drop to about 130,000.

Chips Count
Bryn Kenney us 275,000 29,000
