One Chip is a Call

Level 3 : 100-200, 0 ante

Talal Shakerchi had opened from the button and his opponent in the small blind, online qualifier Maximilian Mast from Germany, tried to raise but as he had put out one chip in it was deemed a call.

The two players saw a flop of {6-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts}.

Mast checked and Shakerchi bet two red T1000 chips. Mast pushed out a blue T5000 chip over the line and said, “Raise.” Once more the dealer explained the “one chip is a call” rule and it was deemed a call of 2,000. Mast took the blue chip back and replaced it with two reds.

The turn card was the {9-Spades} and both players checked, avoiding any unnecessary chip betting problems. When the river fell the {3-Spades} Mast pushed out a single 5,000 chip for a bet.

Shakerchi glared at his opponent for a second before making the fold.
