Once again we heard a commotion at Table 430 and made out way over. Apparently Jared Bleznick had said the f-bomb and both Sam Grizzle and Raymond Davis were lightheartedly pestering him about it, though they believed he should receive a penalty.

"There's no f-bomb rule this year," Barry Greenstein chimed it as action came to a halt. Nonetheless the dealer called the floor over.

"Every time I open my mouth these two guys call for a floor," Bleznick said shaking his head with a smile. The floor arrived and explained that this year there is no penalty for saying the f-bomb unless it is abusive and/or directed at another player.

"All I said was 'Who the f**k would give Sam Grizzle $2,500 to play this tournament,'" Bleznick said, which inspired a round of laughter from the entire tournament floor. The tournament director determined that it wasn't abusive enough to warrant a penalty.

"I can't believe they let him get away with that," Davis said afterwards.

Greenstein then elaborated on the relaxed f-bomb rule: "Some of these people don't have a very good vocabulary, so it's probably the only adjective they know."
