Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Dealer Earning His Pay the Hard Way

• Nivel 3: 100-200, 0 ante

Alan Meltzer is making sure his dealer is earning his pay today. Meltzer seemingly needs to ask the dealer the pot size and what amount he can bet at every street.

He was in a hand with Annette Obrestad and Andrew Robl. On a flop of {5-Spades} {4-Spades} {6-Hearts} Meltzer bet 1,800, Obrestad folded and Robl called. The turn came {4-Hearts} and Meltzer asked the dealer what he could bet. "5,400 is the pot," the dealer said. Meltzer slid out 5,400 and Robl called. No sooner than Robl's chips were collected into the pot Meltzer almost turned over his cards, thinking the hand was done. The dealer and players at the table stopped him.

The river came {5-Diamonds} and Meltzer decided to check and Robl checked behind. Meltzer tabled {7-Spades} {8-Hearts} for a flopped straight and Robl showed {A-Spades} {A-Clubs}.
