James “Ping Pang” Kerr (Lakeland, FL) has gone from surviving to thriving and earns the Hard Rock, Hard Play of the Day.

Giediminas Garmus (38k) Ac5c

Turn: 6 (Lebeau, two pairs; Kerr OE straight draw)

River: T

The Ten on the river gives Kerr the winning straight, taking his stack to more than 300k for our POD.
