Maikel Muis

From the cutoff Maikel Muis made it 52,000 and his neighbor Fernando Garcia called from the button. Joep van den Bijgaart called from the big blind and the three of them saw a flop of {4-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. Van den Bijgaart checked, Muis bet 110,000, Garcia called, and Van den Bijgaart folded.

The {A-Clubs} fell on the turn and Muis was in the tank on what to do while playing with his chips. Before he had announced anything, Garcia bet 126,000, thinking that Muis had checked.

Muis corrected the dealer and said that he hadn't checked just yet, but that he was ok with what had happened. "Ok,... then I'm all in!" said Muis. Garcia folded instantly.

Now the dealer gave the 126,000 bet back to Garcia who wasn't objecting.

Muis, Andrejevic and Van den Bijgaart objected and the floor came over to make a ruling. At first he ruled that Garcia got his bet back because he thought that Muis had changed the action by announcing the all in before he had committed to his check, but eventually he ruled that Muis' "Ok" was ruled a check, and he didn't change the action by shoving all in after.

Muis showed the {5-Spades}{3-Spades}, received the entire pot, and the dealer dealt the next hand.
