Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Bryn on a Mission

stoffmakers • Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

The player under the gun limped and Ricky Fohrenbach raised to 2,900. Bryn Kenney bumped it to 7,700 on the button and the waiting game began. The player under the gun turned around to look at the tournament clock to see how many players were left. He then began stalling for quite some time. Clearly, he didn’t understand the concept of hand-for-hand play and that it didn’t matter how long he took. If he was the only player to be eliminated that hand, he would be the bubble boy. But if others were eliminated as well, then they would split the money.

Kenney had had enough at this point and called time on the player and the floor came over to give the player his minute and ten seconds. It took until the clock was down to around 30 seconds for him to move all in. Fohrenbach instantly folded and Kenney made the call. UTG showed {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} while Kenney held {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} for a sick cooler on the bubble. The board ran out {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and the player survived to double up.

After the hand, Kenney said “nice stall” and then proclaimed that he didn’t care if he bubbled but that it would now be his mission to bust his opponent. Needless to say the following hand, he raised the players big blind and when the player folded, Kenney showed {9-Spades}{6-Spades} and said "I’ll raise your big blind with any two”.
