Created (3/19/2023 2:28:10 AM by Anthony Thompson)

Day 1c of the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Riverside $1,110 Main Event attracted 360 runners, and with the 358 totals from the previous two flights, brought the final number up to 718 entries.

The combined fields generated a $694,960 prize pool, and the top 72 players will get paid a minimum of $2,293 while the eventual winner will walk away with a $142,467 first-place prize.

They were joined by Mark Lafata (295,000), MSPT champ Max Havlish (239,000), Colden Carlson (237,000), WSOP bracelet winner John Reading (221,000), defending champ Lee Rzentkowski (192,00), and Angela Jordison (161,000).

Kenniston Rivers Straight Flush Dropping Two Players
Created (3/19/2023 12:12:25 AM by Anthony Thompson)

A player from middle position raised to 7,000 and was called by the hijack, along with Dave Kenniston from the big blind.

The flop came and Kenniston checked to the initial raiser who continued for 11,000.

The hijack called while Kenniston check-raised to 31,000.

The raise prompted all-in bets from both Kenniston’s opponents, and he called having both players covered.

All-In Player:
Hijack:
Dave Kenniston:

Kenniston was in a dream situation after flopping the nut straight and holding the straight flush draw, but the turn gave his opponent the ace-high flush.

Kenniston was still live drawing to the queen of hearts and as fate would have it, the dealer dropped the on the river giving him the nuts to drop both opponents.

Dave Kenniston - 400,000
