Papola Enters, Loses Pot


Six-max legend Jeffrey Papola registered recently, and is seated in the back of the ballroom. We reached his table moments ago, and the board was {7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Papola led for 1,800, and his opponent tossed out a grey T5,000 chip, saying, "Thirty-two hundred."

"You can't do that," the dealer informed him. "You have to raise to at least thirty-six hundred."

The player obliged, making it a min-raise, and Papola called. The river was the {k-Spades}, and both players checked. Papola's opponent tabled {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for two pair, and Papola mucked.
