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

When Paying Attention Really Counts

A middle position player opened for 28,000 and the action folded around to Dag Palovic, who verbally declaried a raise. Palovic put out the 28,000 call while he decided on the amount to make this three-bet. However, before he could put out the rest of the chips, Max Gurevich called the 28,000.

Naturally, the floor was called over to resolve the issue. Since the action did occur in turn and Palovic did verbalize his intentions, Gurevich's 28k had to stay out there.

Palovic made it 78,000 to go and Gurevich called the three-bet while the initial raiser folded. The flop was {9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. Palovic bet 50,000 and Gurevich called. Both players checked the {10-Spades} on the turn. The river was the {J-Spades} and Palovic led out for 80,000. Gurevich let his hand go and Palovic raked in the pot.

Palovic is up to 955,000 while Gurevich fell to 310,000.
