Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante
At Table 65 a couple of players have been asking to see the losing hand after every showdown. This has rubbed some of the other players the wrong way and left Chance Kornuth explaining the etiquette of when hands must be showed. The debate had been ongoing when the following hand began to play out.
Justin Schwartz raises to 1,000 from middle position, the player to his left calls, Santa Claus calls from the hijack and Kornuth calls from the button.
That is right, Santa Claus. We later confirmed that was the name printed on his registration receipt.
The dealer opens 652, Schwartz checks, the player to his left bets 2,500, Santa Claus calls, Kornuth calls and Schwartz folds. The three players see the 6 on the turn, the player in middle position checks, Santa Claus makes it 3,600 and Kornuth fires off 12,000. Middle position folds and Santa Claus and Kornuth see the 4 on the river. Both check, Santa Claus shows 1010 and Kornuth quickly throws his hand into the muck.
"I want to see your cards," Santa Claus yells.
"You should have asked sooner," Kornuth replies.
"You knew I wanted to see your hand," Santa Claus fires back as the rest of the table, Kornuth included, begin to laugh.
"You can't have auto post clicked," Schwartz chimes in.
The debate over the showing of hands is expected to continue.
