Event 48: $3,000 Limit Hold'em

"Can I Re-Raise?"

When we arrived at Table 357, Aubin Cazals was all in. There was a raise in front from James Demartini, and the action was on John Virtue, who asked the dealer if he could put in a re-raise. The dealer nodded, "yes," but Vritue didn't announce his bet, and just threw in an oversized chip in. By rule, it was a call.

"Can I re-raise?" Demartini asked.

The dealer was about to answer, but Demartini started laughing.

"I'm just kidding," he told him. "I call."

The flop was {3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}, and Virtue led out. Demartini called. Virtue led again when the {4-Diamonds} turned, Demartini called, and the {6-Spades} completed the board. Virtue bet, and Demartini called.

Virtue rolled over {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} for a pair of aces, Demartini mucked, and Cazals tabled his hand, but all we caught was the {10-Hearts}.

"Bet you liked that flop," Virtue told Cazals, who left quickly.

We assume that that means Cazals had a second heart, but we'll never know for sure.
