Alex Rocha Eliminated, Shows Table Bent Cards

Alex Rocha

Alex Rocha opened from under the gun, Taylor Wilson and a third player called to see a flop of {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades}. All three checked, the turn came {5-Clubs} and Wilson bet 3,200. The unknown player mucked and the dealer accidently exposed several cards in the muck reaching for the cards.

The dealer rushed to turn them back over and Rocha called out the cards. Rocha laughed, looked at Wilson and said, "I'm only calling because of the cards I saw."

The river came {6-Clubs}, the table was amused by Rocha's comment and Wilson checked. Rocha bet 11,000 - leaving about 10,000 behind - and Wilson put out a stack of 5,000 chips to set Rocha all in.

Rocha sat back, tanked for a short bit and slid his remaining chips forward. Wilson tabled {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a full house and Rocha showed {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}.

"Good luck everyone, but the this ace is marked," and showed the table. "I had to put it underneath the other card because it was bent so bad."

The dealer called the floor and the deck was taken out of play.
