Jacks Do It For Velador

• Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

Kyle Keranen raised to 250,000 from the hijack only to have Luis Velador three-bet to 650,000 from the small blind. Keranen called the three-bet and the two were heads up to the {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop. Velador came out with a bet of 625,000, sending Keranen into the tank.

After about 90 seconds, Keranen announced a raise to 1.35 million. Velador called to see fourth street. The {K-Spades} fell on the turn and both players slowed with a check. The {Q-Spades} paired the board on the river and Velador checked. Keranen checked as well, allowing Velador to show {J-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Keranen mucked his cards and Velador picked up the pot.

Velador took down the sizable pot and now has 15.81 million in chips. Keranen, on the other hand, has dropped to 4.835 million.
