Kessler Gets There on the River

zedmaster84 • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Alessio Soriano raised to 10,000 and Giorgi Mevlupishvili called from one seat over in the cutoff. Allen Kessler moved all in for 63,500 and Soriano quickly tossed in a single chip for the call. Mevlupishvili only thought about it for half a minute and folded the {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} face up.

Allen Kessler: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Alessio Soriano: {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

"I gotta win one of these once in my life," Kessler said in table chat before the flop came {9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}.

"Maybe not," Kessler added and the {6-Diamonds} fell on the turn.

The board completed with the {A-Spades} river and Kessler locked up the double.
