An interesting situation just occurred over on Table 32. We got to the table around the about the same time the tournament director was called over to deal with the situation.
Andrew Hinrichsen was first to act and apparently he said to the table that he saw Pat Dillon had either a deuce or an ace. Dillon then looked down at his hand and was surprised to see both an ace and a deuce. He wasn't sure what to do, so he told the table he had both. This is when the floor was called over to the deal with the issue. It was obviously a unique situation and the tournament director said that, as there was substantial action already in the hand (Hinrichsen had opened the betting and two players had folded), that all he could do was give Dillon the option to play his hand. Dillon wasn't excited with this ruling, obviously not too interested in playing a hand that the entire table knew he had. When the action was on him, he folded and was was made to fold the face up to ensure he was telling the truth. As we left the table, the players were still talking about and debating the interesting situation.
On a flop of , Bob Sova checked to Tim O'Shea, who bet 17,000. Sova made the call and then checked the turn. O'Shea gathered some chips and fired out a healthy bet of 64,000, which Sova called, leaving himself just 84,000 behind.
When the appeared on the river, Sova gathered his chips and spiked them into the pot, which O'Shea snap-called. Sova knew he ran into it and sure enough, O'Shea rolled over for the nuts. Sova showed and then exited the tournament floor.
Yesterday Phil Ivey and Jason Koon sat next to each other basically all day. Table 27 just got broken and guess who moved to Phil Ivey's table? Yes, it was Jason Koon. The big difference between today and yesterday is that Koon now sits on the right of Ivey. This could bring up some interesting clashes between the two top professionals.
