When we arrived at the table there were chips everywhere. Former November Niner Jason Senti was walking out of the door and just in front of his empty table space lay , Marvin Rettenmaier had a cheeky "it wasn't me" grin on his face and in front of him, the board was showing and the man passing the German the majority of his chips was Owen Crowe.
"I had pocket aces," said Crowe.
After a chinwag with some of the players we understand that Senti open shoved with the fours, Rettenmaier three-bet with the ace-king, Crowe four-bet with the aces, Rettenmaier moved all-in and Crowe called.
Crowe was left with a sour looking face and just a few thousand chips while Rettenmaier had moved up to 168,000.
Then in the very next hand Crowe picked up pocket aces once again. He moved all-in and was called by a player holding pocket tens and yes you've guessed it, the pocket tens hit a straight to eliminate the unfortunate Crowe.
