Barnhart Outraces Kelly for Near 7MM-chip Pot

Sam Barnhart staying alive

Sam Barnhart opened from under the gun, and the action folded to JP Kelly who three-bet to 720,000 from the big blind. Barnhart four-bet shoved for 3.375 million, Kelly snapped it off, and we were off to the races!


Barnhart: {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Kelly: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

The rail grew as the dealer fanned {6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Both players remained seated, Barnhart visually more anxious than Kelly. The turn was another brick - the {7-Spades} - and Barnhart was one card away from successfully doubling.

The {9-Clubs} on the river gave Barnhart a straight just for kicks, and he doubled to 6.9 million chips.
