Kennedy Big Stax XXVI 1500 Champion: $124,211

  • Big Stax XXVI 1500 11:05 PM
  • Level 29 (50,000/100,000/100,000)
  • Players Remaining: Complete

Chris Kennedy aka the “Seoul Assasin” traveled here from Harrisburg PA for not only the 1500, but also for both the 300 and 500 Big Stax XXVI events.  Not for a lack of trying, Kennedy fired 12 bullets in each even, however, he was unable to build any kind of momentum in the 300 to bag chips, and although he made day 2 of the 500, he busted out before the money.  Although the cash game pro was fully prepared to fire another 12 bullets in the 1500, it only took one this time.  Kennedy started day 2 with just around average in chips, and again day 3 in the middle of the pack.  He remained steady and rode out the swings to bring home the victory to the ‘hottest free agent in the poker community today.’

Chris Kennedy Big Stax XXVI Champion: $124,211

Ha Eliminated in 2nd Place: $78,380

  • Big Stax XXVI 1500 11:05 PM
  • Level 29 (50,000/100,000/100,000)
  • Players Remaining: Complete

Chris Kennedy’s recent heater bringing him neck and neck with Thai Ha, who dominated the majority of the final table, has just carried him to a victory.  With a raise pre with his A♦K♣, Chris Kennedy went to battle with Thai Ha who held K♦3♣

Flop: 2♦7♦3♠

Turn: 3♦ The two get it all in, Kennedy with his remaining 8.575 million in chips is on the line, and he is looking for one of the remaining 8 diamonds in the deck, which he promptly roots for, and indeed the 5♦ on the river gives him the A high flush vs the K high flush held by Ha.  Ha is left with 300k, which he puts in the next hand with his 10 high, vs Kennedy with J high which holds up.  Ta is eliminated in 2nd Place for $78,380.

Anybody’s Game

  • Big Stax XXVI 1500 11:00 PM
  • Level 29 (50,000/100,000/100,000)
  • Players Remaining: 2

Just a few minutes before the break, Ha opens to 175k on the button, Kennedy calls.

Flop: 10♠9♣6♠  Kennedy checks, Ha bets 200k, and Kennedy raises to 500k and a call from Ha

Turn: 3♥ Kennedy leads to 700k, Ha raises to 1.7 mil, and Kennedy moves all in for his total 4,375,000.  Ha thinks for a couple minutes, then pulls aside the chips to make the call, and then places the chips over the betting line.

Ha: K♠10♦ 

Kennedy: A♥10♣

River is a meaningless 8♥, for Kennedy’s top pair, top kicker to hold and take a temporary chip lead, and with a couple small hands played out before break Ha brings things back to almost even between the two.  Below are there chip stacks going into level 29.
