Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Johnson Finds a Double Through Keranen

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Steven Bennett opened to 110,000 from the cutoff only to have Kyle Keranen three-bet the button to 230,000. From the small blind, Chris Johnson moved all in or 1,095,000 and Bennett folded before Keranen went into the tank and called.

Keranen: {J-Spades}{9-Spades}
Johnson: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

With Johnson holding the slight advantage, the {3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop gave him additional outs to a straight, and when the {7-Clubs} and {A-Diamonds} completed the board, he doubled to 2.4 million as Keranen slipped to 8.7 million in chips.
