€50,000 Majestic High Roller

"Ahh, F*** It, I've Got a Rebuy"


On the first hand of the day, Yi Cheng raised to 5,100 from under the gun. Action folded to Sam Trickett on the button, and he announced, "Raise," before tossing out a single gray T5,000 chip. Daniel Negreanu pointed out that Cheng had already raised, but Trickett didn't see it. Because his intention was announced as a raise, Trickett had to make it 10,200. Mind you, due to French gaming law, all raises must be double the total previous amount.

"Good morning, fish," Negreanu joked to Trickett as he knew Tickett had mis-clicked with the raise.

Action then folded back to Cheng. He took a few moments, then reraised all in for 94,900. Everyone laughed at what had happened, knowing Trickett made a mistake.

"I guess he probably wants me to call now," Trickett said. He spread his stack out, then said, "Ahh, f***it, I've got a rebuy," and pushed his chips forward.

Trickett revealed the {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades} and Negreanu made sure to point out his hand. "Queen-jack off! Ha!" laughed Negreanu. Cheng held the dominating {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}.

The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} to give Trickett a monster with a full house. The turn was the {6-Hearts} and river the {5-Clubs}. Trickett had won the pot to eliminate Cheng in true bad-beat fashion.

"Must be nice to be Trickett!" said Negreau as he laughed.
