  • Jonathan Little analyses a hand from the WSOP between himself, Frank Kassela, and Jonathan Duhamel.

In this video, I share a hand I played in a $5,000 buy-in World Series of Poker event last summer involving myself, 2010 WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel, and Frank Kassela who in 2010 won the WSOP Player of the Year.

Would you have played this hand in the same way? Let me know in a comment below.
