Jon Turner Quietly Lucks Out

We found Jon Turner at his table raising under the gun only to be reraised by a player in middle position who had gone all in for about 7000 in chips. Turner contemplated for a couple of minutes before ultimately putting the chips in the middle. Cards were turned over and Turner was in bad shape as his {6-}{6-} needed a lot of help to beat his opponent's {K-}{K-}.

The cards fell {J-}{6-}{8-}{2-}{9-} and with a set of sixes, ever so quiet Turner added more chips to his consistently high stack.
