Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Kassela with the Bigger Straight

• Level 19

Pot-Limit Omaha

Chun Lei Zhou raised to 60,000 from early position and Brandon Shack-Harris called from the cutoff. Frank Kassela came along from the small blind and three players saw a flop of {3-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Two checks saw Shack-Harris bet 90,000, and only Kassela called to see the {9-Spades} turn. Both players checked and then Kassela fired out 290,000 on the {2-Hearts} river.

Shack-Harris snap-called with {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{x-}{x-} for a wheel, but it was no good as Kassela held a bigger straight with the {6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.
