Tens Do It for Keikoan

Chad_Holloway

Ryan Eriquezzo raised to 32,000 under the gun and cleared the field all the way around to Matt Keikoan, who made the call from the big blind. The latter proceeded to check-call bets of 38,000 and 88,000 on the {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop and {3-Spades} turn respectively, before both players checked the {J-Spades} river.

Keikoan rolled over {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a pair of tens, which proved enough to win as Eriquezzo sent his cards to the muck.

Stone Takes Monster Pot from Keikoan

[user196975]

Nikolas Stone opened the action for 37,000, Matt Keikoan called and Andy Hwang called from the big blind. The flop came {4-Hearts} {K-Spades} {10-Spades} and Keikoan bet 70,000 when it was checked to him. Hwang folded and Stone re-raised to 170,000.

Keikoan called and the turn came {8-Hearts}. Both players checked and the river came {3-Hearts}. Stone checked and Keikoan bet 200,000 after some long thought. Stone called, Keikoan tabled {Q-Spades} {9-Spades} for a missed straight-flush draw and Stone held {K-Clubs} {J-Hearts}.

Stone took the pot and the chip lead after that hand.

Sam Stein raised to 34,000 from the hijack and was called by Matt Keikoan in the big blind. When the flop fell {J-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, Keikoan, who is now the chip leader after Andy Hwang doubled Huy Nguyen, led out for 45,000. Stein gave it a little thought but opted to lay down his hand.
