Hand #39: Bryn Kenney opened with a raise to 335,000. Action folded around to the big blind where Jason Koon called.

The flop was {9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Koon checked. Kenney continued with a bet of 185,000. Koon then decided to check-raise, making it 405,000. Kenney called.

On the {Q-Clubs} turn, Koon ripped it in, shoving in the rest of his stack, and Kenney called.

Bryn Kenney: {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Jason Koon: {K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Koon only had a pair of fives while Kenney had turned top pair. The river was the {8-Hearts} which was a brick and that meant that Koon was sent to the rail in seventh place. For his run in this event, Koon collected $372,894. Kenney moved over 10 million chips after the hand.

With Koon's elimination players are now finished with play for the day. The final six will return tomorrow and a full recap of today's action will be posted shortly.
