Brummelhuis Shows His Hand
Level 10 : 500-1,000, 100 ante
The flop was and on the table lay the exposed cards of Michiel Brummelhuis . At the other end of the table face up was the of Markus Stranzinger. The floor had been called because Brummelhuis had turned over his cards and still had 5,000 chips behind, a tiny amount compared to the pot. Brummelhuis was worried that the floor would rule his hand dead.
The floor explained that the “hand is never dead.” In situations like these. If another player was still to act he may incur a penalty but it wouldn’t kill his hand. In any case it was just the two players, and the hand played out with all the chips in the middle.
The turn and river didn’t bring a flush for Brummelhuis and he was out.
