The controversies surrounding Will Kassouf
Kassouf’s first news-worthy incident came when he titled Vanessa Selbst. Watch below.
The next Kassouf controversy was during the 2016 WSOP Main Event where he was given a penalty which many in the poker community found very harsh. He was using speech-play during a hand and the tournament director felt he went too far. Check out the video below and make your own decision.
Finally, a huge hand happened between Kassouf and Griffin Benger very deep in the same Main Event. Kassouf was dealt KK and Benger AA. Kassouf started talking and Benger lost his cool. Benger kept telling Kassouf to “check his privilege”. Check out the incredible hand below.
Will Kassouf is actually quite a decent poker player. The recent WSOP Main Event is by far his biggest cash, but I’m sure there will be plenty more of him to come in the future.
