Event 7: One Round Penalty

$500  + $60 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack

Blinds: 500/1k/100 ante

Nigel Murray likes to have a good time at the table. Anyone who has played with him in The Poker Room at Seminole Hard Rock knows this and knows how to handle it.

He talks. A lot. But it’s part the local’s personality which gets him in trouble on occasion but sometimes it catches his opponents. The board read Kc8h6c when Murray had enough chips moved forward to cover his opponent in the 4-seat. He was going through his chatter when his opponent tabled his KdQd without actually calling.

Murray flipped over his AcKh to begin the debate among players, staff, and dealer. His opponent was given the opportunity to fold his hand, saving his last 20k, but was given a one orbit penalty for exposing his cards. The hand moved Murray up to 90,000 but it could have been a little more.

Murray has over $250,000 in career earnings and a regular at Seminole Hard Rock including a win in the 2013 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Double Stack Turbo and 3rd place in the Big Slick this September for $21,883.
