Kassouf Cracks Queens; Doubles Through Leckey

zedmaster84 • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

In the previous hand, Jussi Nevanlinna had shoved from the button and William Kassouf folded in the small blind. "I am getting it in with king high next hand," and Nevalinna joked "I will shove first."

Nevanlinna then folded the cutoff and Kassouf announced all in. "This is the hand. Thanks guys, merry Christmas to you guys." Patrick Serda folded in the small blind and Kassouf added "thanks Paul, cheers mate," before Paul Leckey had called. The other table was to finish his hand still and the showdown then took place.

William Kassouf: {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Paul Leckey: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}

"Any kings about?" Kassouf asked, but the flop came {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. Matas Cimbolas leaned over and mentioned "you need a ten now," which Kassouf promptly asked for. Sure enough the {10-Spades} came right away on the turn and Kassouf improved to a straight. "Brick please," the Brit asked for and the wish was granted with a blank {2-Hearts} on the river. Kassouf doubled for 445,000 and moved to just under 1 million.

Paul Leckey ie 1,400,000 -500,000
William Kassouf gb 970,000 -30,000
