Jeff Kessler

As the tournament was preparing for their first break, Jeff Kessler was sitting in the small blind when an early position player moved all in for 7,400. He called, the big blind folded, and Kessler was looking good.

Kessler: QcQd
Opponent: AcQh

Kessler was dominating and his queens held as the board ran out 4c4s2c7cJh. He sent the player out and he improved his stack to 22,100.

On the very next hand, Carlos Bermudez opened and Kessler got his stack in the middle from the button. Kessler once again picked up queens but Bermudez was a massive leader with kings and sent the former RRPO Seniors champ out right before the break.

Carlos Bermudez – 59,300 (148 bb)
