Ali Imsirovic raised from the button to 70,000, and Bryn Kenney called from the small blind.

The flop came 10d4c2h, Kenney checked, Imsirovic bet 100,000, and Kenney called. The turn card was the Kd, and both players checked.

The river card was the 2d, Kenney bet 545,000, and Imsirovic called. Kenney showed Ad9d to win the pot with a diamond flush, and Imsirovic mucked.

Bryn Kenney  –  2,245,000  (75 bb)
Ali Imsirovic  –  3,150,000  (105 bb)

Two hands later, Bryn Kenney raised from the cutoff to 70,000, and Martin Zamani called from the big blind.

The flop came As10h2s, Zamani checked, Kenney bet 60,000, and Zamani called. The turn card was the 7d, Zamani checked, Kenney bet 185,000, and Zamani called.

The river card paired the board with the 2h, Zamani checked, and Kenney bet 585,000. Zamani went into the tank and started talking.

“I was probably supposed to raise the turn,” said Zamani. “But I’m not thinking of raising now. Are you hoping I’ll play good for once and fold?”

Kenney laughed and said, “It’s a reasonable time to hope for that.”

Zamani eventually called, and Kenney shows AdQs for two pair, aces and deuces. Zamani quickly said, “No good,” and then he smiled and mucked. Kenney took the pot.

Bryn Kenney  –  3,150,000  (105 bb)
Martin Zamani  –  2,515,000  (84 bb)
