William Kassouf

Will Kassouf has been engaged in a running battle with Keith Lehr at his table since he sat down, even going so far as to try and bet whether Kassouf would still be in the tournament come 6:30 p.m.

It is currently 6:40 p.m. and the pair are still seated at the same table; no mean feat when the tournament is still growing like it is, with just over 400 entries so far on Day 1.

Kassouf opened to 2,000 at 400/800 and Keith Lehr three-bet to 4,400. It folded back to Kassouf who called.

"If you got it, you got it," said Kassouf as the flop came {5-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. He checked to Lehr who continued for 7,200.

After some standard talk from Kassouf, he folded.

"Go on," said Kassouf. "You can show queens."

Lehr did not have queens.

"Nine-high like a boss," said Lehr, and the table fell about laughing as he tabled {9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and took down the pot.
