Event 32: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Give Him a Break


When we arrived at Allen Kessler's table, he was busy opening it up with a raise preflop. All of the table got out of the way, except the big blind made the call. On the {q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{a-Spades} flop, the big blind check-called a bet from Kessler and then both player's checked the turn ({8-Diamonds}) and the river ({8-Clubs}).

At showdown, Kessler's opponent tabled {q-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Kessler said, "give me a break," as he turned over his {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. "I've played one hold'em hand all day," Kessler added.

As Kessler's opponent raked in the pot, he said something about being in the big blind, while Kessler watched on, still not impressed. Despite losing this small pot, Kessler has had a great start to the day and sits high up the chip leader board.
