Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout

Makowsky Penalized

BrettC • Taso 5: 300-600, 0 ante

We heard a commotion brewing over in the Bronze section and walked over to learn that Dan Makowsky had been given a one orbit penalty. And he wasn't happy about it.

Apparently, Makowsky had mucked his cards too aggressively three hands in row. The third time, his cards flew into the dealer box and nearly hit the dealer himself. A floorman was called over and Makowsky was handed a one-orbit penalty.

"I didn't do it this time!" Makowski repeated to the floorman. The penalty comes at a bad time for Makowsky, who is down to around 3,000 chips.
