Michael Vela was talking to Rasmus Glæsel just next to the table when a new hand was getting underway. He rushed back and was informed by the dealer that he was the big blind. He was still talking to Glaesel and folded his hand. He took it back when the dealer told him he needed to put the big blind in and said: "That might be a tell!"
Despite Vela clearly not loving his hand, action folded around to Nadya Magnus in the small blind and she just limped in. Vela checked and they both checked the flop and turn as well. The on the river made Magnus bet 28,000. Vela called just about instantly.
Magnus showed and Velas said "Chop it up!" while showing .
The dealer paused, checked the board one more time, and looked a bit puzzled. Magnus said "Chop it" but the dealer wasn't having of it.
"Sixes, an ace, and a king" Vela said, and Magnus concurred.
Cliff Josephy and the dealer pointed out there was a fifth card needed to make a poker hand, and Vela and Magnus quickly realized the flaw in their logic.
"Somebody check my blood sugar!" Vela said with a big smile, leaving the pot to Magnus.
