Big Slick Does the Trick for "kenny05"

Chad_Holloway • Level 10: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Kenneth Smaron

European Poker Tour Prague €10,300 High Roller champ Kenny "kenny05" Smaron just tripled up in a big hand against Scott Margereson and Piotr Franczak.

It began when Margereson raised to 18,000 under the gun, Smaron three-bet all in for 78,000 from the button, and Franczak four-bet all in over the top from the big blind. Margereson called off for 187,000, which created a 218,000 side pot.

Margereson: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Smaron: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Franczak: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

Smaron seemed excited to hold two live overs, but he was left wanting on the {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} flop. The {5-Clubs} turn gave him a wheel draw, but it was the {K-Spades} river that gave him a pair of kings for the triple. Meanwhile, Margereson's tens were good enough to win the side pot, meaning he profited a little on the hand.
