Kelly Makes Correct Call

We got to the table on the river, with the board reading {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{3-Spades}{6-Hearts}{a-Clubs}. JP Kelly had position in a three handed pot against Stuart Elkin and Ernest Hou. With about 26,000 in the middle, Elkin checked to Hou, who fired out 13,500. Action was on Kelly, and he went deep into the tank. After about 3 minutes of motionless thinking, Anders Taylor called the clock. The floor arrived, and as soon as he gave Kelly a warning that he had 10 seconds left, Kelly tossed in the call.

Elkin folded, and Hou shook his head, and mucked his hand face down. Kelly had to table his hand to claim the pot, and he showed {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for a pair of aces. After that hand, Kelly is up to 135,000.
