Bryce Yockey raised to 32,000 from the cutoff only to have Allen Kessler three-bet to 120,000 on the button. The blinds got out of the way and Yockey opted to four-bet to 382,000. Kessler five-bet all in and Yockey called off for his stack of 619,000, creating a massive 1,262,000 pot!
"I'm freerolling," Kessler said after the cards were turned up and discovering he was the only player with a low draw; unfortunately for him, he spoke to soon as the flop delivered Yockey a straight. Neither the turn nor the river changed a thing and Yockey vaulted into the chip lead.
"Wow, that was a bad cooler," Kessler mumbled after the hand. He is down to 61,000 while Yockey is the chip leader with 1.262 million. "I could have just called and folded on the flop."
