Kenny Neri

After five players saw a flop of Qh5c4d, action checked to the cutoff, who moved all in for 7,500.

The player on the button folded, and Kenny Neri called from the small blind. The big blind folded, and Noah Schwartz thought for a while before folding from middle position.

The cutoff turned over Ah3c for ace high with a gutshot straight draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Neri’s 6d5s (pair of fives).

The turn card was the Ks, the river card was the 9c, and Neri won the pot with his pair to eliminate his opponent.

Kenny Neri  –  49,500  (62 bb)
