Kessler Doubles in "Ridiculous Hand"

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Allen Kessler

Eoghan O'Dea raised the button and Allen Kessler defended out of the big blind to see a flop of {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Kessler ended up all in for 287,000 and once the cards were tabled, he said "you really have a set there on the button? That's a ridiculous hand."

Allen Kessler: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Eoghan O'Dea: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The {6-Diamonds} turn was a blank, however, the {8-Spades} river improved Kessler as one player at the table pointed out "and you have a straight."
