Instead of the usual poker curse that poker bloggers give players, it seems I have had the opposite effect on Jordan Young.
With Bryn Kenney and a second player heading to the rail, we spoke to Young about the hand in which he eliminated both players.
Kenney opened to 3,000, and one player was all in for 1,000. Young made the call holding , and two other players joined them to see a flop. Kenney continued for 5,500 with only Young making the call as the landed on the turn.
Kenney checked, and Young pushed out a bet of 13,500, which Kenney called as the landed on the river. Kenney checked, and Young moved all in. Kenney made the call, flashing his before making his way to the rail since his top two pair couldn't beat Young's three nines.
As Young was pushed the pot, he moved to roughly 168,000 in chips.
