The €600 Bottle of Whisky

Webjoker • Level 7: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

We missed it, but Charlie Carrel busted Leon Tsoukernik not too long ago and promised to buy him a drink to make up for it. Wouldn't you know it, Leon Tsoukernik bought back into the tournament, drew the exact same seat again right next to Carrel, and took his British neighbor up on his offer of a free drink.

But Tsoukernik didn't just buy a regular soft drink from the bar menu, he ordered a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

While he was in a hand (he would turn a set of eights and win a decent pot of Anthony Zinno), the bottle was brought to the table by the staff. While they unboxed the bottle and prepared two glasses, they slid the bill to Tsoukernik.

The King's Casino Rozvadov owner, still busy winning Zinno's chips, glanced at the bill and told Carrel it was €600. Carrel's jaw dropped a little, but, as a man of his word, reached for his wallet and started pulling out wads of cash. Tsoukernik, now betting 40,000 against Zinno, told Carrel to put back his money and eventually paid for the bottle himself. Not before he made Carrel promise they would go party one night, though, and the latter would presumably have to take care of that bill.
