Event #25: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship

Kassela Climbing


Frank Kassela has one bracelet already this WSOP. He's working on a second today. He scooped Sammy Farha in a recent pot by flopping the nuts and then hanging on. Matt Glantz was the pre-flop aggressor. Farha called from the button and Kassela called from the small blind to a flop of {6-Spades} {10-Spades} {9-Diamonds}. Kasella opened with a bet that Glantz raised. Farha called two cold and Kassella also called.

Kassella took the lead again when the turn paired the board, {10-Diamonds}. Glantz and Farha both called. No low materialized with the {q-Clubs} river. Action checked all the way to Farha, who took a stab. Kassela called the bet; Glantz folded. Farha knew his {k-} {k-} was no good, and he was right. Kassela turned over {7-Spades} {8-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {3-Hearts} for a ten-high straight.
