James Kerr
James Kerr won the 2021 Tampa Poker Classic Main Event, outlasting a field of 959 to earn $228,038.

Mohammed Kabir min-raised UTG+1 to 80,000, James Kerr moved all in from middle position for 440,000, and Kabir asked for an exact count and thought for a while before he called with Ks10s.

Kerr turned over AcQh, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9c5s3s5c7d, and Kabir flopped a spade flush draw, but improved no further. Kerr won the pot with his ace to double up in chips.

James Kerr  –  980,000  (25 bb)
Mohammed Kabir  –  2,075,000  (52 bb)
