"Table Your Hand"

"Table your hand, Sorel"


Nick Schulman: (X)(X) / {4-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} / (X)
Abe Mosseri: (X)(X) / {2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} FOLDED
Sorel Mizzi: (X)(X) / {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds} / (X)
Doug Booth: (X)(X) / {5-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{3-Spades}{a-Hearts} / (X)

When we arrived at the table, the players were on fifth street, and Schulman was already all in. Mizzi tossed out a bet, Booth called, and Mosseri folded.

Booth made a better board on sixth with the {a-Hearts}, and led out. Mizzi called. Booth led again on seventh, and without hesitation, Mizzi called.

Schulman happily opened {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a full house, and Booth tabled {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Spades} for a pair of aces and a six-five low. Mizzi didn't do anything for the better part of a minute, opting to sit silently as Schulman and Booth waited for him to either open his cards or muck.

"Open your hand, Sorel," Mosseri urged him.

He obliged, tabling {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, and after a bit of rearranging, the dealer saw that he had a better six-five low than Booth. This sparked controversy.

"Abe, you never tell a guy to open their hand," Erick Lindgren piped up. "He could've mucked."

"I was going to open," Mizzi assured him.

"We don't know that," Lindgren responded.

"Yeah, who knows," Booth interjected. "Maybe he has a piece of him."

"I don't have a piece of him," Mosseri shot back.

The issue lingered after the hand, and one of the only people not to offer their opinion was Schulman, who happily stacked his newfound chips.
