Event #13: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw

Chait Nearly Doubles Through Kassela

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 1,800 ante

Round 2 for Craig Chait and Frank Kassela: 20,000 in yellow chips was in front of Kassela and silence reigned for a brief moment on their table. Kassela did not have much more than 20,000 total and considered for a minute before calling. Chait showed {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{3-} which beat Kassela's nine.

The dealer started counting down Chait's full stack to double him up, but Kassella pointed out, "I only bet 20,000!" They declined to get the floor involved, Chait taking the 20,000.

"I bet for value," said Kassela. "I thought you had a worse nine."
