Event #21: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship

Bellande Doubles Through Kassela with Better Nine

• Level 11: 1,500-3,000, 4,500 ante

Cary Katz raised under the gun to 10,000 and Jean-Robert Bellande called on the button, as did Frank Kassela from the big blind.

Kassela and Katz drew one, and Bellande drew two.

Kassela led out for 30,000 and Katz folded, and when he did, an assortment of cards were exposed after they hit the muck; {8-}{8-}.

Bellande shoved all in for 118,500 and Kassela quickly called.

"I have a nine," announced Kassela.

"Well I win then. Better nine," responded Bellande.

Kassela tabled his {9-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{3-}, but Bellande's {9-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-} for a nine-smooth would secure him the double.
