Event #12: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Amin Doubles Through Martirosyan

• Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

David Martirosyan opened to 24,000 from the cutoff and Ahmed Amin announced "pot," and the raise was to 90,000, leaving Amin with just 21,000 behind.

Martirosyan thought for a while before finally announcing "call," and tabling the {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}. After a ruling from the floor, it was determined that Martirosyan's action was indeed a simple call and the dealer fanned a flop of {6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Martirosyan then led for 21,000, putting Amin all in.

Amin turned over {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for two pair and the board ran out {q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Amin doubled.

Immediately after the hand, Martirosyan was informed that he needed to serve a nine-hand penalty for exposing his cards prematurely.
