Event #4: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Bounty Hunter

Kessler Helps Out; Pays Up

KaleGozer • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

A very short-stacked player was all in and no fewer than seven (!) other players hunted for the bounty. Allen Kessler was the one to bet 5,000 on the {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{J-Clubs} flop and Jan Mach was the only caller. Kessler quickly bet 15,000 on the {J-Spades} turn and Mach called again.

Before the {10-Spades} river was dealt, Kessler had the remainder of his stack in and Mach called. Kessler tabled {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, Mach {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and they chopped up the short stack who had {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

They'd chop the bounty of €300 but there was one problem: the bounty is represented by a single physical chip. Always the one willing to help out, Kessler quickly offered to pay €150 from his pocket to Mach and received the flashy bounty chip.
