Aces, Aces, Everywhere for Kelly


When we arrived over at JP Kelly's table, Robert Layne was busy three-betting all in for around 200,000 after the cutoff opened it up to 24,000. JP Kelly was in the big blind and shoved over the top, having both his opponents in the hand covered. The player who opened let go of their hand and Kelly and Layne turned over their showings.

Kelly: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Layne: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Kelly was in good shape to add to his growing stack and that's exactly what he did, with the {3-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs} board eliminating Layne and sending the pot to Kelly.

During this hand we noticed that the table was sniggering about something. Apparently Kelly had eliminated Darren Grant just a few hands earlier, holding none other than {a-}{a-}. When you run good, you run good.
