Traniello Finds a Pot

Frank Kassela

Lee Goldman completed with the {A-Clubs}, and he found action from Marco Traniello (with the {10-Diamonds}) and Frank Kassela (with the {2-Spades}). Goldman drew the {9-Diamonds} and check-folded on fourth street.

Traniello: (x-x) / {10-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {6-Hearts} / (x)
Kassela: (x-x) / {2-Spades} {4-Spades} {2-Hearts} {9-Clubs} / (x)

Traniello bet fourth street and called a raise from Kassela, but he fired right back out when he paired up on fifth. Kassela called that bet and another one on sixth street before they check-checked through seventh.

Traniello showed up {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} / {10-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {6-Hearts}, and his queens up were good.

Kassela flashed his {8-Spades} {9-Spades} and said, "Flush draw. Every spade was live, too. Not one dead spade."

Live or not, he couldn't find a fifth one, and that loss has set him back to about 43,000.
