In one of the final hands of the night, Travell Thomas was given a penalty for grabbing and revealing Marc Macdonnell’s┬ámucked cards. It appeared to be a preflop raise or reraise by Macdonnell to take the pot, and Thomas picked up the cards to see what they were.

A floorperson was immediately called over, and Thomas was given a one-round penalty to finish out the night. His penalty will carry over to the beginning of play tomorrow as he must sit out the first several hands.
