Coolers come in a variety of temperatures. Some are chilly, others extremely cold but the one that Frank Kassela suffered at the hands of Yevgeniy Timoshenko was positively Siberian.
When double WSOP bracelet winner Kassela looked down and saw a very pretty looking AdKc he must have been doing a little internal jig of delight. Naturally he raised it up to 100,000, heads up opponent Yevgeniy Timoshenko re-raised to 225,000 and Kasella pushed all in. Timoshenko snap called and to Kassela's horror tabled pocket Aces. A couple of clubs gave Kassela some hope but blanks on the turn and river sealed his fate at the hands of the harshest coolest imaginable. Earlier WPT London winner Jake Cody was the first player to bust out in the fourth heat followed by Simon Zach, Praz Bansi, Tyron Krost, Dixie Dean and Fabian Quoss before the coldest of coolers sent Kassela to the rail. Timoshenko, who won the 2009 WPT $25k Championship Event joins Sam Trickett, Andrew Robl and John Duthie in the final.Today's heat pits recent EPT Vilamoura winner Toby Lewis against Dale Hoy, Heather Sue Mercer, Huck Seed, Philipp Gruissem, John Tabatabai, Jason Gray and Unabomber Phil Laak.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
