Kenney Climbing

Cottrellmkw • Level 14: Blinds 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

A player in middle position opened to 11,000 and was called by the small blind as well as Bryn Kenney out of the big blind.

The small blind checked on a flop of {8-Clubs}{4-Spades}{6-Spades} and Kenney led out for 14,000. The middle position player released his hand but the small blind made the call.

The {9-Clubs} turn saw the small blind check for a second time. Kenney amped up the ante, firing off 54,000. The small blind seemed suspicious and contemplated his options for quite some time. Eventually, he opted to wait for a better spot and folded.

Kenney showed the {j-Spades}{2-Spades} for the semi-bluff as he continued to build a big stack. With both Kenney and Ali Imsirovic now up over 1,000,000, it should make for an interesting conversation about their ongoing situation were they to turn their current momentum into a deep run.
