With the average stack at 45 big blinds to start this final table to be slow moving in the early going as players felt each other out. John Kulp had other plans as his run good from last night carried over to the first hand of action.
With the board reading A♣4♦K♠6♣10♣ Jay Kelley led out for 305,000 with about 700,000 behind. John Kulp then put Kelley to the ultimate test for all of his chips. Kelley quickly called and was dismayed to see Kulp roll over A♠A♦ for top set as Kelley could only muster A♥K♥ for top two pair.
Kelley will take home $17,285 for his finish and Kulp increases his final table lead to nearly 5,200,000.
