Paul Gourlay gets Last Ten Minute Penalty News Now:

An odd hand developed when he called a raise in the big blind with .  He'd been battling with this guy all day (according to my list it's Emanuele Carboni, but I am not sure) and when the flop came he called a 2,500 bet to " possibly bluff the flush on the turn."  The flush did appear next card, and he checked quickly (which doesn't quite tally, unless he was sure he'd be able to check-raise) but anyway, a check behind brought an Ace on the river. 

Paul checked, and thought it had been checked behind (which it hadn't).  Then he exposed his cards, a pair of Sevens his best hand.  The floor was called, and he was given a ten-minute penalty and allowed only to call.  His opponent then bet 3,500.  He was given a minute maximum to call, and after using up the full time bank, he did.  Incredibly, with three spades, an Ace and King on the board, and a bet in position from someone who'd already seen his hand, the Sevens were good.

Much shouting ensued (but it was all pretty good-natured).
____________________________________

"Last three hands of the night" have been declared.  Nearly home-time for the Day 1A-ers.  And a whole ten hours before play re-starts. 

He was only allowed to call?

Well, that's a stupid ruling.

Only a fish like Tikay would raise after exposing his cards.

The point is that is standard procedure - no creating action yatta yatta yatta, the actual debate was on the liveness of his hand.  Of course.  It happens almost every time in a situation like this that someone decides to get a ruling on whether the exposer's hand is live.  And that ruling is given almost every time in response.

I think the exposed hand should be dead.

The other player was almost forced to bluff when he saw the weakness of the hand against him and although Gourlay made a good call, he certainly wouldn't have won those chips if he hadn't exposed his hand.

Gourlays error won him the extra chips. surely not fair.

Keith I had a very similar hand in the Vic once. We had got down to the river where I thought the guy behind me had checked when in fact he hadnt, so having revealed my QQ on a K hi board, the ruling was passed that I could only call a bet. The guy then instantly went all in and after some thought I called and won Smiley

Again your innocent mistake won you chipsyou probably wouldn't have won if you hadn't made the mistake.

This just doesn't seem right to me.

Just like it's the players job to protect their cards, it shouldbe the players job to follow the action.

I hearby am starting a campaign to get this rule changed!!!

Well done to the three blonde Updaters, a great first day under difficult circumstances. They were on duty 16 hours straight, & have 5 more days still to come!

Day1b should be a corker, with plenty big names, and a goodly batch of DTD Boys, all due to make their appearance.

2pm local, 1pm UK, Thursday.
