Kassis Claims Chip Lead

Posted 2009-01-16 GMT+11
Mark Kassis raised to 24,000 on the button and Jonathan Karamalikis made it a further 70,000 to go from the big blind. Kassis stalled for a while before making the call.

The flop fell down {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and Karamalikis moved all in and was instantly called by Kassis as he slammed down {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Karamalikis sheepishly tabled {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} as he looked to find a queen or running straight cards to send Kassis to the rail.

The turn improved both players falling the {A-Diamonds} and when the river landed the {3-Spades} Kassis doubled to 496,000 and took over the chip lead as Karamalikis sunk to a deficit holding 377,000 in chips.
