After a flop of Qh6s3s with about 110K already in the pot, Mark Edward Kerness got it all in from the cutoff for 328,000 with KsKc for an overpair.

Kerness needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the 9h9c of Alan Schein on the button.

The turn card was the Kh, the river card was the 5c, and Kerness clinched the pot with a turned set of kings to double up in chips.

Mark Edward Kerness  –  765,000  (77 bb)
Alan Schein  –  330,000  (33 bb)
