2021 World Series of Poker

Floor Please! Translator Please!

• Nível 4: 150-300, 50 ante

There was a lot commotion on table 9. The floor was called over a couple of players and railbirds rushed to the table and in the end a lot of people gathered around table 9.

Actually, it wasn't really a big deal. The Lebanese player Bejjani Kamal had acted out of turn with a 6,000-bet on the river. The board was {K-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Spades}{10-Spades} and I should have been up to Bulgarian Petar Petrov to make a move first.

Since Kamal already threw in his bet, Petrov opted to call the 6,000. Kamal thought he could withdraw his 6,000 because the action changed and did so while throwing his hand in the muck.

The floor came over and ruled that the 6,000-bet still stood because the action was heads-up so Petrov was allowed to opt for a call. It would have been different if it was a multi-way pot.

The biggest problem was, that Kamal and Petrov didn't really understand what was happening. So some friends came over to translate and in the end, everything was okay.

Kamal got his hand back and showed {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, which wasn't good enough against Petrov's {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}.
