It was a battle of the blinds between Zoltan Czinkota in the small blind and Jeff Kessler in the big blind. After several raises, Kessler moved all in for 415,000 and Czinkota tanked for a couple minutes before calling.

“If somebody looked at my cards, they would think I am stupid,” said Czinkota while he was in the tank.

Czinkota tabled KdKc and was on the wrong side of a cold deck against Kessler’s AdAh.

The board ran out clean as it came 5h4c3dTc3h and Kessler’s rockets held up to double up and take a sizable chip lead over the other four players.

Jeff Kessler – 836,000
