Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Arieh Wants the Whole Pot, but Only Gets Half

[user68268] • Nivel 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Josh Arieh

At the end of the last level, from the cutoff seat, Mustapha Kanit raised to 5,000. Josh Arieh called from the button, and the player in the big blind also called.

The flop came down {10-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, and the player in the big blind checked. Kanit bet 7,000, and Arieh called. The player in the big blind folded.

The turn was the {3-Spades} to pair the board. Kanit bet 17,300, and Arieh called to see the {Q-Hearts} land on the river. Kanit bet 27,200, and Arieh made the call after a bit of thought.

After Arieh called, Kanit flashed him the {A-Diamonds} and then dropped his hand facedown on the felt. The dealer reached out and grabbed Kanit's cards, but didn't turn them over, nor did he pull them into the muck. At this point, Arieh hadn't showed his hand, but someone else at the table piped up and said that a winning hand must be shown. Arieh asked if Kanit's hand was dead. The dealer didn't say anything, but the table repeated that a winning hand must be shown. The dealer then tabled Kanit's hand to reveal the {A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}.

Arieh requested the floor to be called and claimed that Kanit's hand should be dead because he had mucked it. The dealer didn't pull it into the muck, though, therefore it was ruled that Kanit's hand was live. Arieh wanted the entire pot, but it was ruled that he would get only half after turning over the {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for a chopped pot.
