[user20283]
Kyle Keranen is the new chip leader!

Luke Brereton raised preflop to 45,000 from the cutoff, after which Kyle Keranen three-bet from the button to 105,000. Both blinds folded, and Brereton opted to four-bet to 245,000. Keranen announced he was all in, and Brereton called off his remaining 1.3 million chips to create a massive preflop all in.

Keranen turned over {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, and he got caught bluffing by Brereton who showed {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}.

The flop brought out {Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, and Keranen shouted "Yes!" as he took a commanding lead.

"Just two more!" Keranen said as the dealer burned before putting out the turn.

The {4-Diamonds} hit, and Keranen said, "Just one more!".

On the river the {9-Clubs} hit, and Keranen jumped into the chip lead. Brereton was left behind with just a payout slip, and his Main Event dream is over.

Keranan consoled with opponent who looked devastated, "Good call man." "That's how you win poker tournaments," Keranan said with a huge smile after he stacked up his freshly won chips.
