A three-way preflop situation here during the first hour of Level 6 saw players betting back and forth until Steven Wolansky and another opponent had each committed around 17,000 with the third player stepping aside. Wolansky had and his opponent .
The produced an audible reaction from the table thanks to the possibilities it afforded Wolansky, but after the turn and river he'd lost the hand and quickly got up and departed the Amazon Room.
However, the counting down of chips afterwards revealed that Wolansky actually had his opponent outchipped by 425. Someone was sent after Wolansky, and he returned to his seat saying he'd thought his opponent had him covered.
On the first hand back Wolansky open-raised all in from the cutoff and both blinds called. The other two checked down the board, and when Wolansky tabled it was the best hand and he'd triped his tiny stack.
Not long after that Wolansky doubled up, and is now back over 3,000.
