Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Kokernak Busts in Huge Set-over-Set Cooler

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

It was a cold deck indeed that pitted two big stacks against each other early on Day 3. Louis Kokernak, with 717,000 chips, found a spot to get them all in having flopped a set with his {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} on a {8-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts} board. The trouble for him was that opponent Todd Keikoan had flopped a higher set with {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. They both improved to a full house with running fours on the turn and river but after a minute or so's pause to ascertain the larger stack, Kokernak hit the rail.

"That's a tough one," remarked a tablemate, while Kokernak said, "It's been fun."

"Was that, though?" his neighbour asked after Kokernak had gone to collect his prize money, "That hand, was it fun?"
