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

Call or Muck?


There was an issue that came up on the main feature table where Joseph Cheong bet the board of {A-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs} into Filippo Candio. Candio went forward with chips, released them and then pulled them back before releasing his cards according to the tournament staff. The cards didn't touch the muck and it was ruled that Candio called the bet and would get his cards back.

The river was the {4-Hearts} and Cheong fired another bet. Candio called again. Cheong showed a set of nines and Candio mucked.

Candio was upset he lost the hand and his rail section began commenting and complaining before the announcer warned them to be quiet.
