"I'm glad I got here on time today!" said Kassela with a wide grin just now as we were passing by his table.
You'd think Frank Kassela was having a good start today. We've seen him win multiple hands, turning a straight in one, flopping full houses in two, and getting paid in each instance.
Truth be told, however, Kassela was being slightly sarcastic with his comment. If he were to speak more frankly, he'd probably say he would have been better off arriving late.
That's because the hands Kassela has been winning have been for very little, as he began the day losing a few hands to run through his first two 5,000 stacks and nearly all of his third.
He's doubled up a few times and still has his seat for now, but he won't should he lose one more all-in.
