A Devilish Hand


Oscar Kemps opened to 1,200 from under the gun, Eugene Schmidt moved all in for 13,350 on his direct left, and the action folded to David Ritter, who re-jammed for just under 26,000 from the button. Darvin Moon folded from the small blind, and Gabe Kaplan released from the big.

Kemps looked like he was in physical pain, and after some thinking, he announced, "fold," showing {a-}{k-}.


Kaplan and Moon both complemented Kemps for his fold, saying that they both had an ace when the {a-Hearts} peaked through the window of the flop. It was followed by the {3-Spades}, {q-Spades}, and a groan from Kemps. The turn and river came {9-Clubs}, {4-Spades} respectively, and Ritter increased his stack to 42,000.

Kemps just missed scoring a double knockout, but still has over forty big blinds with 20,500 chips.
