Thomas Doubles Up After Close Call

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Former November Niner Russell Thomas apparently opened from the big blind and was temporarily facing an all-in bet from the small blind.

After pleas of "no, no, no!," from a table that also includes Jamie Kerstetter and Todd Terry, we walked over to see a couple of sets of cards on their backs and the dealer apologizing as he straightened things out. The dealer had thought Thomas had folded, but Thomas' intent was definitely to call with his {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.

The other player had Thomas covered and had tabled {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Once things were settled, the board ran out {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and Thomas doubled up.
