With bracelets comes fame, and with fame comes attention. It's something Frank Kassela is going to have to get used to.
He already has two bracelet wins this year, his last one coming last night in the $2,500 Razz event. His second win has skyrocketed him up the ranks in the Player of the Year Race where he is now tied for first with John Juanda and Vladimir Schmelev.
Despite playing until 5am, he still had chips in the $10k HORSE so he had to be back here at 3pm sharp to play his stack.
After busting in just a few minutes, he started walking away from his table and a railbird began jumping up and down calling for him.
"Excuse me, excuse me!" the twenty something girl cried as she waved her arms.
Kassela turned and looked at her and began to approach with a smile. Did she want an autograph? A hug? A picture with the bracelet winner?
As Kassela came closer, she pulled out her iPhone. Ahhh, she wanted a picture.
"Excuse me sir, can you take a picture of that guy in the yellow shirt?" she asked. Ouch.
"The guy in the yellow shirt?" Kassela asked. "Sure, I'm not sure who the guy in the yellow shirt is, but I'll take a picture of him."
Kassela went over and snapped off a shot and then returned her camera.
"Thank you sir," the girl replied as she reviewed the shot on her iPhone completely oblivious of Kassela's existence.
It's OK Frank, we here at PL.com know who you are. Congratulations on your second bracelet win!
