The answer to the king’s resort
King’s Resort Poker Manager Federico Brunato issued the following public statement regarding the hand:
Dear poker community,
I share with you a very interesting situation that happened during one of our annual WSOPC events.
I’m glad I got to document this live because it’s something that happens all too often during games and isn’t talked about much. With this post I want to educate and give official advice to our poker community.
First of all, our croupiers are highly trained professionals who undergo 6 weeks of training before starting their career at King’s. I myself started as a dealer at King’s and know the work ethic. The dealer in the clip is lovely Mrs. Sona, who has been a member of our family for 6 years. When it comes to the level of our broadcasts, we do our best to ensure that it is as high as possible, and as a result, Sona has been a permanent member of our TV team since she first stepped into our team.
By hand #35 of the WSOPC ME final table, Pierre Kauert was eliminated and collected a nice sum of €58,000, including a ticket to the WSOPE ME.
I would like to refer to one of the most important rules of poker – always read your hand. At the end of the day we are all human and we can all make mistakes and Sona is no exception. Although he had thousands of successful hands throughout his life, unfortunately this hand was misunderstood. But like Sona, Mr. Pierre Cauert and all the other competitors at the table also misread the hand, which is of course very unfortunate. The hand had to be split and now we can guess how it will go in Pierre Kauert’s Main Event, maybe he will become the champion with the gold ring, maybe he will be eliminated in the next hand.
Finally, I would like to refer to WSOP rule #76, which states: The right to compete a hand ends when a new hand begins. This applies not only to the WSOP, but also to almost all regular poker games played.
I urge the poker community not to criticize and find fault with other people’s mistakes, but to learn from them, know your rights and play your own game, because every situation is unique.
Brunato then added:
I want to emphasize that my intention was not to instruct anyone, but rather to point out that such events often occur even outside of flow charts. How important it is for all players to be alert and remember how important it is to follow the game and know the rules.
Nevertheless, we will remain vigilant in our efforts to improve communication within the team to avoid similar situations in the future.
I take full responsibility for any mistakes that may occur on my team, because the people I choose to work with are a reflection of who I am and my commitment to perform my duties with the utmost professionalism.
Biggest poker blunder of all time?
With just five players left in Tuesday’s €1,700 Main Event, €171,000 to the winner, and just €20,000 in Hendon Mob, German player Kauert went all in for his remaining 1 million chips. .
collided with of Lupo, covered it easily. The pot was 2.2 million, a significant amount considering there were only 35 million chips in play.
Poker Enthusiast on Twitter (@EyDuBrot) sent us this video, which has since been removed from the YouTube live stream. The flop came out , giving both players an even score. However in turn gave them a pair, which was on Lupo’s kicker.
Cowherd needs a king to make a straight and win, or a six or queen to split. When the board gives a pair appeared in the river, but apparently no one noticed that it was a cracked pot.
Kauert shook hands with the other players at the table and went to collect his winnings (€58,350) at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. Even the presenters did not understand it, although the graphics from the live broadcast showed a “split” on the screen.
According to sources on the site, it has been decided that a player can only challenge one hand. It’s kind of like how an NFL coach can’t call a play until the other team snaps the ball. In this case, the game continues and the previous action is saved.
We will update this story as the situation develops.
