The dealer originally announced that the amount had to be double the bet to constitute a raise and therefore McKenzie's action was merely a call. 2011 Aussie Millions winner David Gorr had made the call of 750, when the supervisor was called over for an official ruling.
The supervisor declared that since the amount thrown out was over 50% of Huntly's original bet McKenzie's actions constituted a raise and therefore McKenzie must raise the minimum of 1,500 to which he obliged.
Gorr made the call of the new amount and all three players saw the on the turn.
Huntly, who declared he was ahead on the flop, checked, McKenzie bet 2,700, and Gorr.
"Maybe I wasn't ahead" Huntly said before folding. The river brought the and both players checked. McKenzie then showed the for a pair of sixes and Gorr shook his head before mucking.
After the hand McKenzie declared that his intention was actually just to call but couldn't say that during the hand as it would make his hand look weaker.
McKenzie moves up to 44,000 in chips.
