Charlie Carrel continues to push his stack in the right direction after things escalated quickly on the river with the board reading . It was heads up and when faced with a bet of 800, Carrel bumped it up to 4,500.
Carrel’s opponent slid his 800 back and loaded up a raise before deciding against it and throwing his hand in the muck. The dealer reminded the man of the 800 he’d taken back and when that was returned, Alexandra Janikova who was sitting between the two players argued that he couldn’t slide his 800 back and then simply fold.
Janikova discussed with the dealer whether the action was indicative of a raise or a call before ultimately a tournament supervisor was called over. While the consensus among tablemates seemed to be that there was no malice behind the action, the official ruling was a fold but the player was given a warning for angle shooting.
