Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Floor Ruling

• Taso 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Stephen Reynolds is currently a little upset at a decision the floor has made, but according to the rules, it seems like the correct ruling was come to.

This is what happened. Aviraham Lovton opened the pot to 50,000. Reynolds, in the cut-off seat, wasn't aware the pot had already been opened and said, "I raise to 50,000." The table then filled him that the pot had already been opened to 50,000. This is when the floor was called. As Reynolds had verbalized the words "I raise," he was obliged to put in a min-raise to 76,000. He wasn't happy with this call and seemed uncomfortable while the rest of the hand played out.

The two players checked as the dealer turned over a {8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} board. However on the river Lovton bet 40,000 and then Reynolds folded. As Reynolds sent his cards into the muck, Lovton said, "phew!"
