Event 12: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

Lyndaker Knocks Kassela Out


The 2010 World Series of Poker Player of the Year Frank Kassela has just been eliminated by Richard Lyndaker. We caught the action on the flop, {9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, with 8,000 chips in the pot and Lyndaker bet 5,500. Kassela opted to raise to 16,000 and Lyndaker put the pressure back on making it 35,000. Kassela announced he was all in and Lyndaker snap-called.

Lyndaker showed {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} for a flopped straight and Kassela turned over {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Kassela needed running cards to make a full house or a jack to split the pot. The turn was the {3-Spades} and the river the {4-Hearts} putting Lyndaker in the fourth round.
