Kessler Out of Line

We don't know exactly how the action went, but we know some betting took place that ended with Allen Kessler moving all in for about 40,000. Action was on Nick Abou Risk, who took his time deciding what his best option was. In the end Risk announced "call", to which Kessler asked "do you have ace-queen?". Risk's response was to flip over his hand, {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Kessler scoffed at his opponent telling him "what an awful call". Kessler then took his time to expose his {j-}{j-}.

Kessler was ahead going to the {6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop. The {4-Spades} on the turn brought Kessler saying "I f**king knew it" and went on to berate Risk even more, repeating how awful of a call Risk made. The {7-Hearts} on the river just gave Kessler more fuel for his tantrum. Kessler was also not happy with the dealer, who apparently spread the chips in the middle when no one asked him to. Kessler then would take turns muttering curse words about the dealer and Risk, until he eventually packed his Ipad in his plastic bag and stormed off to his pay off.
