The World Series of Poker which is a spectrum of poker events held each year in Las Vegas fetes the winners of the tournament with a bracelet and a cash-prize depending on how many entrants and buy-ins a player has. However, in the recent years tremendous developments have revolutionized the events, with rapid increase in the number of sub-tournaments and participants. Frank R. Kassela is a US poker player residing in Las Vegas who has won the bracelet-accolade twice in the 2010 WSOP. As professional players will admit, few ever sail through to the events finals that are inundated with an army of players, elimination is almost inevitable.

However, he seems to have bounced back into poker limbo, if he is to return to the global arenas, he has great potential for distinguished performance. We should not forget that most players launch themselves to make a killing in the pursuit of financial independence and retire, perhaps, he is one of them. But we should hope he comes back re-invigorated.
