Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Double for Kessler

The flop read {j-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Spades} and Allen Kessler bet out 2,500. Kessler's opponent sat on Kessler's direct left and raised to 6,500. Kessler then three-bet and his opponent four-bet all in. Kessler made the call and because he was shorter in chips he was the one at risk. Cards were flipped over and it was Kessler who was well ahead.

Kessler: {10-}{10-}
Opponent: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Both players had flopped sets, but it was Kessler's that was the best. As long as a nine didn't fall Kessler would double up. The {8-Hearts} on the turn opened the board to some potential split pot opportunities, but the {4-Diamonds} on the river washed those dreams away. Kessler now sits around 67,500.
