Conniff Sends Koop Home Early

MattHansen • Level 26: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Niko Koop

Niko Koop shoved his last 250,000 from middle position and Asher Conniff moved in for 1,625,000 from the cutoff. Demosthenes Kiriopoulos went into the tank and asked Conniff how much he had.

Conniff answered and Kiriopoulos continued to consider his options for a few more moments before he tossed 250,000 into the middle.

It was apparent that Kiriopolous did not see that Conniff was all-in, and his intention was to call the bet from Koop. There was no all-in button in front of Conniff since it was in use for Koop, and Kiriopoulos had headphones on. The floor supervisor was called over to make a ruling.

The floor supervisor ruled that Kiriopolous had committed 250,000, and that he had an option to surrender it with a fold. Kiriopolous quickly folded and the other two players tabled their cards.

Niko Koop: {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Asher Conniff: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

The board ran out {5-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and the eights held to eliminate Koop from the Main Event.
