Kassela Doubles Through Moorman


Shortly after Frank Kassela doubled up Amanda Musumeci, he found himself all in. Action started with Chris Moorman raising in last position to 3,500. Kassela moved all in for 11,800 in the small blind, and Moorman elected to make the call.

Moorman: {10-Spades}{4-Spades}
Kassela: {a-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

The flop came down {k-Clubs}{8-Spades}{k-Spades}, giving Moorman a slight advantage, as he picked up a flush draw with his pair outs. Those outs shrunk when the {a-Clubs} hit the turn, and Moorman could only catch a spade to win the hand. The river was the {q-Hearts}, and Moorman shipped the double up over to Kassela.

Musumeci Doubles Through Kassela


Frank Kassela raised from under the gun to 3,300, and Amanda Musumeci made the call in the big blind. The flop came down {9-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}, and Musumeci check called a bet of 5,500 from Kassela. The {10-Clubs} came on the turn, and again, Musumeci check called, this time for 10,500.

Massey Handles Hebda


We didn't catch the exact preflop action, but we know that Joseph Hebda got his stack in preflop holding {a-Spades}{j-Spades}. He was in a world of hurt though, as Aaron Massey had {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. Hebda picked up a flush draw when the flop came {8-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. However, the board ran out sixes, coming the {6-Hearts} and the {6-Clubs}. Massey collected the bounty, upping his stack to 89,000.
