Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Kelly Knocks Out Nguyen

Shamus • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

J.P. Kelly, newly flush with chips after that early double through Matt Giannetti, opened with a raise to 150,000 from late position and it folded around to Minh Nguyen in the big blind. Nguyen checked his cards, then announced he was raising all in for the 795,000 he had left. Kelly made the call.

Nguyen: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Kelly: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

The flop came {10-Spades}{J-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, pairing Kelly's jack. The turn was the {9-Clubs} and river the {7-Clubs}, and Nguyen has been eliminated. Kelly's fast start continues, as he's now up to 8.4 million.
