We have a poker heckler on our hands here in The Poker Room at Seminole Hard Rock. A woman moved all in over the top of an older gentleman. A man watching from a nearby chair stood up and told him “You can’t call her. You know you’re beat.” He still called and turned over A-K. The woman turned over 9’s and flopped a set. “A K going home,” taunted the railbird. “A K going home. Calling with A K. Going home.”

A few tables over, a big pot went down when we had a raise to 2.5K and a re-raise to 7K. A player in late position thought the re-raise was a call and threw out 2.5K. The dealer informed him that it was a raise and he said that he couldn’t tell that the 5K chip wasn’t a 500 chip (they are eerily similar, especially from a distance). The floor was called over and he was told he could either forfeit the 2500 and fold his hand or make the call. He decided to make the call. A short stacked player moved all in for less and the original raiser folded.

The flop came TH9D8H. “I’m all in,” the pre-flop re-raiser announced. Just as quick, the player who made the pre-flop mistake said “I’m all in too. I flopped it” while turning over 7D6H for a flopped straight. His opponent had flopped a monster as well with TSTC for a set. The short stack turned over ADQS giving him outs to a jack to survive. The turn was the 6H keeping the straight in the lead. The river made it all meaningless as it was the 7D putting a straight on the board and leading to a chopped pot. The player with A-Q let out a sigh of relief, as I’m sure the player with the set of 10’s did internally knowing that he wasn’t losing a large portion of his chips.
