Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Kassela and Busquet Bust

[user101598] • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

When we arrived at Table 435, Bodo Sbrzesny was all in and at risk for 66,000 holding {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. Matthew Kassela was all in and at risk for less (36,500) with {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, and a third player had both players covered with an identical {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}.

The flop came down {2-Spades}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, giving Sbrzesny a flush draw to go with his over cards, but both of his opponents had gut-shot straight draws. The {q-Diamonds} on the turn gave Sbrzesny a pair of queens and his two opponents double belly buster draws, and the {5-Clubs} completed the board, giving Sbrzesny a flush.

He more than doubled to 140,000 chips, while Kassela and the third player are eliminated.

At an adjacent table, Olivier Busquet was eliminated with unknown action.
