Not everyone is willing to gamble it up at this stage, and one table in particular is unwilling to double up a short stack needlessly as was shown in this hand. Paolo Compagno opened from under-the-gun for 8,000 and short stacked Sven Kriegerfrom Germany moved all-in. Romain Chauvassagne in the big blind certainly seemed to have a decision to make, presumably complicated by the open from early position. He made a reluctant fold and a frustrated Compagno showed before folding. Chauvassagne flipped over his before the dealer had a chance to collect it and commented, “It was a flip.” A flip he didn’t want to take as Kriegerfrom passed his cards to the dealer, face down.
