Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Put the Money in the Pot

When we arrived at Table 439, Heinz Kamutzki and Brendan Flaherty were heads up on a board of {10-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{a-Hearts}. There was about 50,000 in the middle, and Flaherty had fired out a bet of 35,000.

"Will you show?" Kamutzki asked his opponent.

"Yeah, I'll show," the player responded. "If you put the money in the pot."

They went back and forth a bit more, and then Andreas Hoivold got involved.

"You have to show no matter what now," Hoivold told Flaherty. "We're all curious."

"If you all put in five grand," Flaherty shot back, laughing.

Finally, Kamutzki lifted his cards up off of the felt, and started shuffling them so that only Hoivold could see them. This seemed unintentional, but Nathan Goldstein objected, and the dealer ruled that everyone would get to see the hand after Kamutzki had acted.

Kamutzki folded, and the dealer exposed {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for trip aces.

"Y'all wanna see it?" Flaherty asked, excitedly.

He then pushed the cards into the muck facedown.
