Event #26: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Kimberley Kilroy Flops Set for the Triple Up

Kimberley Kilroy is Beaming After Her Huge Triple Up

Michel Bouskila opened for 45,000, James McClendon called, and Kimberley Kilroy thought this was a good time to move her short stack of 129,000 all in.

She was not pleased to see Bouskila make the four-bet, reraising to 275,000, and when McClendon called she stood up in preparation to make her exit.

The flop fell {4-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}, and after a check by Bouskila, McClendon moved all-in himself. The play pushed Bouskila out of the pot, and McLendon turned over the {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs} expecting to be in the lead.

Kilroy revealed the {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, however, and her flopped set gave her a huge advantage over McClendon's single pair. The {5-Hearts} on the turn brought a gutshot draw for McClendon, and some added sweat for the last lady left in the Seniors Championship, but the {K-Diamonds} on the river secured her the triple up.

"I folded {K-}{K-}," said Bouskila quietly to nobody in particular. "The ace came..."
