Frank Kassela

Frank Kassela was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1968 but lived much of his life in Memphis, Tennessee but most recently moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. The father of five children spent many years as a businessman, and it wasnít until the year 2000 that he began to play poker with an eye for the skills involved. Kassela took his poker abilities from home games to the tournament circuit in 2003, and though he only played the occasional tournament, he produced solid results. His first was a third place finish in a pot-limit Omaha tournament at the Jack Binion World Poker Open, then he placed ninth at the World Poker Tour Aruba Poker Classic, and his next cash was fourth place at the following yearís World Poker Open. As the years went by, he became more serious about his game, though his first actual major win didnít happen until he took down a preliminary event at the L.A. Poker Classic in 2009. The year for Kassela to shine in poker turned out to be 2010. He took on the World Series of Poker and won in a big way. He cashed six times, but of those results, two were wins. His first WSOP bracelet came in the $10K seven-card stud hi/lo-8 championship tournament where he won $447,446. And his second piece of WSOP gold came only weeks later in a $2,500 seven-card razz event. He was the only double bracelet winner of the 2010 Series, and his latest results catapulted his lifetime tournament earnings to more than $2 million.
