Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Two for Cassidy


2-7 Triple Draw

Joe Cassidy was under the gun and opened with a raise, which cleared the field all the way around to Viktor "Isildur1" Blom on the button. Ever the aggressor, he put in a three-bet, Jon Turner called from the big blind, and Cassidy called the additional bet.

Each player proceeded to draw two, and Cassidy put out a bet after Turner had checked. Two calls were made and Cassidy stood pat while Blom and Turner drew one and two respectively. Cassidy bet for a second time after Turner checked, inspiring Blom to get out of the hand. Turner made the call, drew one after Cassidy stood pat, and then folded to a bet.

No-Limit Hold'em

Not long after in a hand of no-limit hold'em, Blom raised from early position and were called by Cassidy and Allen Bari in the blinds. The {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop saw it go check-check to Blom, and he bet 4,200. After Cassidy called and Bari folded, both players checked down the {2-Diamonds} turn and {5-Clubs} river.

Cassidy flipped over {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for nines and five, which was good enough to win the pot.
