Days: 3

Kennedy Doubles Through Andero

Level 22 : 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Paul Balzano opened to 32,000 from middle position, Jonathan Andero three-bet to 75,000 from the next seat and then Brian Kennedy announced he was all in from the big blind. Balzano folded, but Andero was priced in to call, which is what he did.

Andero: {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Kennedy: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

Kennedy took the lead on the {J-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} flop and extended it on the {K-Clubs} turn. Kennedy needed to avoid a jack on the river to double up, and he did just that as the {5-Spades} completed the board.
