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

Schreiber Can't Fill Up


What everyone thought was a five-minute long decision by Gabriel Alarie turned out to be a huge misunderstanding. On a flop of {5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, Alarie checked to Matthew Schreiber, who bet 135,000. Alarie then put 300,000 out in front of his cards, but apparently neither Schreiber nor the dealer realized that he had check-raised. After several minutes the truth of the matter became clear, at hich point Schreiber moved all in and Alarie called all in for 1,279,000 total. It turned out to be Alarie's straight, {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, against Schreiber's set, {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}. No board pair came with the {10-Clubs} turn or the {2-Hearts} river.

The result of the hand lowered Schreiber to 535,000. Alarie is up to 2,860,000.
