Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Tony G Doubles and Gets "First WSOP Penalty Ever"


Action folded to Tony G in the hijack seat and he raised to 21,000. Ilan Boujenah reraised from the button to 47,000 and play folded back to Tony G. He moved all in for 211,000 and Boujenah quickly called.

Tony G tabled the {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and was flipping for his tournament life against the {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for Boujenah.

The flop came down {8-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} and Boujenah picked up some more outs to a spade flush. The turn was the {3-Clubs} and paired the board. The river delivered the {J-Spades} for nailed Tony G with a full house. Tony G gave out a big cheer and pumped his fist as he knew his full house was the winner and he would double up. The dealer had other things in mind though.

The dealer quickly swiped Tony G's hand, not seeing his full house and only seeing Boujenah's spade flush. Right when the dealer did this, Tony G began yelling at the dealer about incorrectly killing his hand. One of the things he said was, "How can you be so stupid?" as he was clearly upset the dealer almost cost him the pot because he was was now buried in the muck and only Boujenah's hand was on the table. Everyone else at the table made sure to pipe up and tell Tony G they all saw it and that it was fine, he'd win the hand.

The floor came over and checked in on the situation. Because of what Tony G said and his rant, he earned himself a one-hand penalty. "Make sure you write that," said Tony G," That's my first penalty of the WSOP, ever."
