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.
