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

Even Kessler's Aces Get Cracked

[user153638] • Level 20

Limit Hold'em

John Hennigan raised from the cutoff and then called when Allen Kessler three-bet from the button. Hennigan then check-called a bet on the {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop and checked the {10-Spades} turn. Kessler bet, Hennigan check-raised, and Kessler called.

Hennigan then bet the {4-Spades} river and Kessler called with the {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}. Imagine his disgust when Hennigan rolled over the {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for the straight.
