Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Saeed Sends Kelly Packing

JP Kelly- Out

Action folded to Omar Saeed in the hijack, and he raised to 35,000. William Katona called from the cutoff, and it was on JP Kelly on the button. He moved all in for 372,000, and the blinds released, putting the action back on Saeed. He made the call, and Katona quickly folded his hand.

Kelly: {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Saeed: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Kelly would need an eight to stay alive, but the board brought no help, coming {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Saeed bumps his stack up to 1.07 million, while JP Kelly was sent to the rail.

This is Kelly's seconds straight deep run in the main event. He finished 26th in last year's main event for a shade over $300,000, and he will take home almost $50,000 for his efforts this year.
