James Kerr

There was an early-position raise and James Kerr called from the cutoff. The button and blinds folded and it was heads up to the Td6c5h flop.

The raiser C-bet 6,000 and Kerr calmly and quickly raised to 12,000. The raiser only had about 18,500 behind and after some time in the tank pushed it all in the middle. Kerr called and the hands were put face up.

Kerr: AsAh for a pair of aces
Raiser: 9s9h for a pair of nines

Turn and river: 8s3d

Kerr’s overpair was good and his opponent hit the rail. Kerr, meanwhile, picked up a few chips and stacked his pile to about 70,000.

Kerr experienced recent success her in Tampa winning the $350/$100K during December’s Winter Poker Open for $30,620.
