Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Lapse In Concentration

There was confusion on Table 339 moments ago as a player threw in a 500 chip to call a 5,500 bet. "Whoa, what are you doing?" interrupted Alex Jacob. "I'd get a floor over here."

"Do you want me to call a floor?" asked the dealer to Evelyn Ng, who was the player responsible for the bet. "Sure," she replied.

Before the floor was called over, said player had already thrown his hand into the muck, but the final ruling was that because he hadn't announced call, he wasn't obliged to match the full bet, but the 500 had to stay. Everyone seemed content with this decision, and we moved onto the next hand.

Amid the confusion, Ng scooped up the pot and now has a stack of 115,000.
