Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

No Luck for Kessler

• Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Allen Kessler was down to his last 625. The {3-Diamonds} brought-in, the {6-Spades} completed and Kessler raised with the {4-Hearts}, leaving himself with just one 25 chip. Jason Mercier three bet with the {7-Spades} and the {6-Spades} called as Kessler went all in.

The boards ran out as follows:

Kessler: {J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}/{4-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}/{9-Hearts}
Opponent: {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}/{6-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}/{7-Clubs}
Mercier: {x-}{x-}/{9-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The third opponent in the hand bet fourth street to warrant a fold from Mercier. Kessler had outs with one card left but didn't get there.
