Kessler Cracks Aces

OHairDJ • Level 4: 200-300, 300 ante
Allen Kessler

A player in the hijack open limped and the cutoff, button, and small blind all followed suit. Allen Kessler checked his option in the big and the flop came {j-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Action checked to the player in the hijack, who bet 1,100. Everyone folded but Kessler.

The turn brought the {3-Clubs} and Kessler checked, prompting an all-in bet for about 7,000 from his opponent. Kessler called and hands were revealed.

Kessler: {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Hijack: {a-Clubs}{a-}

Kessler had turned the flush, and the {q-Hearts} river bricked out for his opponent — sending him to the rail and chipping Kessler up.
