Mix Up Causes Confusion, Thorel Leaves Reixach Short

Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 275,000 from the button and Sergi Reixach defended.

They both checked through the {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} to the {6-Hearts} on the turn. Reixach check-raised the 100,000 bet of Thorel to 600,000 and was called.

The {q-Hearts} completed the board and Thorel bet 600,000 out of turn. The floor was called and Reixach had the option. Reixach seemed uncomfortable with the situation and felt bad. He bet 600,000 for Thorel to make the call. Reixach and the floor explained to Thorel that he had the option still but Thorel insisted on calling.

Reixach showed the {5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for the straight but then Thorel flipped over the {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for the nut flush.

Reixach put his hands in his hair: "Oh no, you're supposed to raise..."

The floor explained to Thorel that he was supposed to raise when he was last to act and had the nuts as per the rules. Thorel nodded and the floor was ready to give him a penalty but Reixach objected and said he'd wouldn't play like that. In the end, no penalty was given as everyone agreed things had become confusing and they continued play.
