Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Kassela Plays it Slow


No-Limit Hold'em

Josh Arieh raised under the gun to 2,000 and Frank Kassela called in middle position. Danny Fuhs called from the button and both blinds, David Chiu and Daniel Alaei, called as well.

The flop came down {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} and after two checks Arieh bet 5,200. Kassela was the only player that called.

The turn was the {J-Clubs} and Arieh checked. Kassela threw out 8,500, and the third place finisher of the 2004 WSOP Main Event called. The river was the {3-Clubs} and both players checked.

"Sixes," Arieh announced after which Kassela quickly turned over {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Arieh mucked and Kassela raked in the pot.
