2010 WSOP Player of the Year Frank Kassela has had a pretty abysmal series so far by his standards, and after a bad call in this last hand, he has not started the Main Event off well either.

We came into a hand on the turn with the board reading {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{10-Spades} and the player in the big blind open-shoved for 23,100. Kassela was understandably a little taken aback and he went into the tank for some time. Eventually he made the call and his opponent tabled {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} and Kassela just said, "you're crushing" as he flipped over his {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} The river was the {9-Clubs} and Kassela has fallen to just around 7,000. Not a good start to the day
