Misclick Becomes Massive Pot

Robbie Verspui raised to 65,000 on the button and Daniel Makowsky went to make the call in the big blind, but instead of throwing out two green 25k chips and 3 orange 5k chips, Makowsky threw out three green chips and two orange ones, this made it 85,000 meaning he was forced to make a min-reraise to 100,000.

Verspui quickly moved all in for 855,000 more but Makowsky decided after some thought to make the call anyway.

Verspui: {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}
Makowsky: {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

The flop came {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and Verspui doubles up to about 2 million chips.

Andrew Badecker 2,600,000 -50,000
Daniel Makowsky 2,500,000 -1,050,000
Robbie Verspui 2,100,000 1,100,000

The two got it all in preflop for Robbie's last 550,000. Badecker had {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and Verspui had {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The flop was looking good for Badecker when it came {5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} but the turn was the lucky {K-Hearts} for Verspui and the {J-} on the river was no help for Badecker.

The chip counts as of the writing of this post are as follows

Daniel Makowsky 3,550,000 700,000
Andrew Badecker 2,650,000 -800,000

Badecker Plays Table Captain

• Level 5: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Erik Cajelais and Robbie Verspui are the short stacks now as Andrew Badecker is opening almost every pot as we hit the end of the level.
