Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

The Truffle Shuffle

Chad_Holloway • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Given the speed of the hands, the two remaining players have been waiting for the automatic shuffler to complete in between hands; as such, Phil Hellmuth recently inquired as to whether or not they could switch to a hand shuffle. Don Zewin didn't have a problem with this so they asked the floor, who then radioed his superior.

The two players stopped action for a bit (with the clock running) while waiting for an answer, but it didn't come in a timely fashion. Eventually it was agreed that they would use the machine when the deck was ready, but they'd do a hand shuffle if the hand completed before automatic shuffler.
