Misstep from Thorel Costs Him a Round

[user249920] • Level 2: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Jean-Noel Thorel

Jean-Noel Thorel bet from the button and got check-called by Alexandros Kolonias. Thorel showed top pair with {k-}{9-} on a board of {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The only problem was the river had yet to emerge from the deck, and the dealer placed the {2-Spades} on board. Kolonias thought a long time and checked, with Thorel checking and winning a pot worth over 25,000.

After the hand, a tournament official handed Thorel a one-round penalty. Anthony Zinno lobbied for a warning but the official said he was sorry but the rule said a penalty must be given in that spot.
