Carter Kessler Eliminated in 11th Place ($100,689)

Carter Kessler - 11th Place

It was folded to Carter Kessler in the small blind who moved all in for 1.2 million. Stephen Graner, the big stack, was in the big blind. He looked at his cards and leaned back.

"Did you really just do that?" he asked. "Ripped 1.2 million when I have this hand?"

"Gotta," replied Kessler.

Graner casually tossed a stack of T25,000 chips into the middle as if he wasn't expecting to see them come back to his stack. He was ahead, however, with his {A-Spades}{J-Spades} as Kessler only held {K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. "That's a buzz saw," said Kessler, adding "you're supposed to have junk."

The board would run out {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} to give Graner the pot and send Kessler off to collect is six figure payday.
