Kassela Crippled

[user101598] • Level 22


Frank Kassela: {x-}{x-} / {3-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{k-Clubs} / {x-}
Brandon Shack-Harris: {x-}{x-} / {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} / {x-}

Abe Mosseri brought it in with the {2-Clubs}, Shack-Harris completed, and Kassela raised. Only Shack-Harris called.

Kassela led out on fourth, fifth, and sixth street, and Shack-Harris called him down until sixth, when he raised. Kassela tank-called. Kassela checked in the dark on seventh, Shack-Harris bet, and Kassela sweat his card before calling.

Shack-Harris showed {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a flush, and Kassela showed a {k-} for trip kings.

Kassela was left with just 25,000, and doubled on the next stud hand against Jesse Martin when the boards came out like this:

Kassela: {a-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} / {2-Clubs}
Jesse Martin: {j-Hearts}{2-Spades} / {j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Diamonds} / {9-Hearts}

Kassela is still in the danger zone, despite the double.
