Another Monster Pot Vaults Keranen Over 5 Million

"All in and a call," we heard over at Table 385, which has become a familiar shout. We made out way over to see chip leader Klye Keranen holding {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} on a {2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop, which was out in front of Nicholas Abourisk's {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

We're not sure of the action, but but we do know there was at least 300,000 in the pot already and Abourisk was in for around 700,000. The ESPN cameras swarmed the table as the dealer burned and turned the {4-Spades}. Any hope Abourisk might have had of running straight cards disappeared, while the {K-Hearts} river put an end to his Main Event.

Keranen was busy stacking chips long after the hand, and by our best guesstimate, he is sitting right around 5.04 million.
