Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Cassidy Chopped Up



Joe Cassidy was the chip leader at dinner break, but that is not the case anymore.

We arrived at his table in the midst of a hefty pot that included Dan Kelly and Chris Klodnicki. On sixth street, the betting was capped and about 165,000 was in the pot. Their boards read as follows:

Cassidy: {5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Kelly: {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Klodnicki: {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{10-Spades}

On seventh street, Cassidy held the on-board lead and checked. Kelly was next to act and bet. Klodnicki called, but Cassidy put in a raise. Kelly called, but this time Klodnicki re-raised. A call from Cassidy and Kelly revealed the following.

Klodnicki: {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Kelly: {2-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Klodnicki's full house and Kelly's 7-6 low chopped the pot, leaving Cassidy with about 80,000 less in chips.
