Sammartino Wins Pot from Rheem, or Does He?

MikePatrick • Level 11: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Dario Sammartino

Action was picked up on a four-way flop of {3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} with 225,000 in the middle.

Chino Rheem checked in the small blind, Dario Sammartino checked his big blind, and Daniel Negreanu bet 75,000 from early position.

After that, Ali Imsirovic called in late position and Rheem and Sammartino also called.

On the {4-Hearts} turn, after Rheem checked, Sammartino took the betting lead, putting forward 160,000. Negreanu and Imsirovic folded, but Rheem called.

The river brought the {9-Hearts} and after Rheem checked, Sammartino bet 365,000.

Rheem went into the tank grabbing a time bank card to his right and flicking it in before eventually making a call just before a minute had expired.

Sammartino showed {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for winning trip fours. Rheem mucked his cards, but then realized it wasn't actually his time bank he had tossed in, it was his neighbor to his right, Dan Shak's. In fact, Rheem had no time banks left.

The floor was called over to determine whether Rheem's river call stood, because his action came after the 30 seconds allowed without actually having a time bank of his own.

The floor ruled that the mistake was just that, but the action had to stand and Rheem's chips would go to Sammartino.

Rheem understood the ruling and graciously accepted the decision.
