“On a flop of 9-9-5 rainbow, J.C. Tran and an opponent who insisted he remain nameless get all-in with Player 2 holding the shorter stack. Tran turns up J-9 for trips and P2 insta-mucks, but the dealer retrieves the cards from the muck and turns them face-up, exposing A7o.
“The board finishes 8-6 to give Player 2 the runner-runner straight and Tran goes nuts and rightfully so, claiming that his opponent mucked his hand and the pot should be his.”
The floor ruled in favor of the nameless player–who we’ll call Vinny from Staten Island for one reason or another–because he had called Tran’s all-in, so regardless if he tossed his cards towards the dealer face down or his cannoli dripped on them or he spilled spaghetti sauce on them or whatever…as long as his cards were distinguishable (i.e. didn’t get mixed in the muck) the dealer was forced to turn both players’ cards up, pursuant to the rule designed to prevent collusion (i.e. chip dumping). Or something like that.
Judge for yourself by watching CardPlayer’s full video of the controversial hand presented by Lizzy Harrison.
Or you can watch video blogs by WCP fave Kimberly Lansing all day that have nothing to do with the controversial hand but everything to do with Kimberly Lansing being fun to watch.
