About 30 mins into heads up play, and Chris Kennedy’s stack had been going downhill fast from around 5.5 million down to just over 3 million. Ha opens to 175k and Kennedy calls.
Flop: 6♥J♣9♣ Kennedy checks, Ha bets 200k, Kennedy raises to 500k, followed by and all in from Ha and a call.
Ha: A♠J♦ (top pair, top kicker)
Kennedy: 8♣10♣ (flush draw)
Turn: 2♣ (flush for Kennedy, and leaves Ha drawing dead)
Kennedy now has about 6.5 million in chips, and less than a double up away from taking the lead.
