Kessler Sends Brink Out the Door

Frederik Brink

Limit Hold'em

Allen Kessler opened from the hijack, Chris Klodnicki made it three bets on the cutoff and Frederik Brink pushed in 42,000 as he moved all in for less. Kessler called the three-bet of Klodnicki and the two now had a side pot as Brink was all in for the main.

The flop fell {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, action checked to Klodnicki who fired in a bet that was instantly check-raised by Kessler. Klodnicki just as quickly folded and the remaining two tabled their hands.

Brink turned over {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, giving him a pair of dimes and Kessler had him dominated with his {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}, for a higher pair of ladies. The board came down {2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} on the turn and river, changing nothing, as Kessler's queens held on to eliminate Brink from the tournament.
