Frank - 15th Place

With his recent elimination in 15th place, Frank Kassela is now on his way to the other side of the Amazon Room to take part in the Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz.

The last hand of Kassela's night began when Matt Matros opened to 26,000 from under the gun. Randy Christing called on the button and then Kassela three-bet all in from the button. Matros made the call and Christing got out of the way as Kasella got to his first, turning over {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

Matros held {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and would need some help to take down the hand. The help didn;t come on the {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop, but the {a-Diamonds} turn was a good one for Matros. A brick on the river and it was all over for the 2010 World Series of Poker Player of the Year
