John Two-Bears

Armando Figueroa opened the action from under the gun and Brandon Kiehm called in middle position. John Two-Bears moved all in for 80,000 from the big blind and Figueroa raised to 200,000. Kiehm moved all in for 254,000 and Figueroa quickly called for the three-way pot.

Two-Bears: AcKh
Figueroa: KcJs
Kiehm: Td9d

Two-Bears was ahead for the double, but there were a lot of live cards in the deck. Figueroa found one of them on the Jh7c4s flop to take the lead with his paired jack and the 2c turn changed nothing. The river As put Two-Bears back in the lead for a triple up while Kiehm was sent out for a min-cash.

“I’ll take that side pot,” Figueroa laughed with Two-Bears.

John Two-Bears – 255,000 (26 bb)
Armando Figueroa – 879,000 (88 bb)
Brandon Kiehm – Eliminated ($900)
