More than 70 poker players bellied up to World Series of Poker tables today, many for the last time in 2010. Play was set to ensue until there were just 27 poker players left in the main event.
Bryn Kenney was the player that made that happen.
In the final hand of the night Kenney tangled with Pascal LeFrancois, who he’d been involved in a few hands with previously. During one hand, LeFrancois slow rolled a set, carving out a pretty decent chunk of Kenney’s stack and leaving him short. In the final hand of the night, Kenny was all in before the flop, LeFrancois had him covered. They turned over their cards and Kenney had the worst of it for sure.
Kenny showed a pocket pair of two’s, and he’d come up against LeFrancois’s pocket aces. He’d need to hit trips, make a straight, or hope for a miracle from God to stay in the game at this point.
The flop did bring the trips, however, it was an ace, not a deuce that landed on the felt, giving LeFrancois the nuts on the flop.
The turn and river were both bricks, and the field was finally down to 27. Play resumes tomorrow at 12P.M. and will continue until only 9 players remain and the final table is set.
