Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

A Short-Stacked Kessler Doubles


Trevor Reader raised to 31,000 preflop only to call the all-in shove of Allen Kessler, which was just 30,000 more.

Kessler: {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Reader: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

The {5-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop was kind to Kessler as it delivered him a set of fives, with little chance of a low. The {Q-Diamonds} turn gave Reader a flush draw, but the {9-Hearts} river improved Kessler to a full house. He took down the pot to double to 130,000. Not a bad start for a daunting comeback.
