$10k Limit Hold-Em - Keikoan Wins 2nd Bracelet
In what has to be considered a miracle comeback, Matt Keikoan has taken the 2010 $10k LHE Championship.
At one point earlier in the heads up match Keikoan didn't even have enough for a big blind and was all in with deuce-eight off suit. He was facing a deficit of approximately 60:1. Still, he managed to double up on that hand, hit trips for another double up minutes later and kept on riding a wave of good luck all the way to the chip lead.
In the pot of the night Keikoan held J♣ 5♣ against Idema's 10♦ 5♥ with each holding a pair of fives after the river. The win gave Keikona the chip lead and he never looked back.
The hand that sealed Idema's fate came one prior to the final hand of the evening. On a board showing 7♣ 6♥ 4♦# the pot was raised, reraised and then capped. The turn brought a 9♠ and the river brought a 10♥. Idema led out on the river and left himself with only one bet left.
Keikoan thought for a moment, and then made the call with 4♣ 6♦ for the winning two pair against the one pair of Idema who held A♣ 7♠.
From the Rail
"C'mon one time," one of Keikoan's fans said on the final hand of the night, hoping his hand could fade all of the potential outs of Idema.
"One time?! That's the most ridiculous quote I've heard all night." Idema's fans were justifiably frustrated having seen their guy get sucked out on time and again earlier in the match.
That's all from the Amazon Room tonight. Thanks for staying up, or waking up, with us.
