Jack Salter Takes Chip Lead In Controversial Circumstances
Ilan Boujenah is so angry we have just seen him headbutt the wall, and the man responsible for the emergence of lava is Jack Salter.
The pair got embroiled in a pot with Ilan Boujenah three-betting with pocket jacks, Salter four-betting with pocket kings, Boujenah five bet jamming and Salter calling. The outrage is because Salter stacked his chips with his blue denominations hidden behind his pink, red and yellow chips. With each blue chip worth 5,000, this means that around 100,000 was hidden from view when Boujenah went for the jugular.
The Tournament Director was called and Salter was given a verbal warning. Salter apologised, but that was no comfort for Boujenah who has had to pass the chip lead to Salter. But Boujenah is made of strong stuff and in the time it has taken for us to write this article, he his back up to 100,000!
