Former World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event Champion Jerry Yang is in the building. He already has one 2012 WSOP cash sewn up after finishing in 153rd place in the $1,500 No-Limit Re-Entry Event. Here is he getting involved in a strange hand with Vojtech Ruzicka.
Ruzicka raised to 450 in the hijack seat, Jerry Yang called in the cutoff and the big blind also called. The flop was , the big blind checked, Ruzicka bet 550 and Yang folded. Ruzicka then threw his hand into the muck and the dealer went to hand him the pot. This was, of course, before the player in the big blind reminded everyone that he was still playing! Own goal by Ruzicka, because as the dealer told him, "I can't retrieve your hand from the muck darling." The pot was given to the big blind by default and Ruzicka was left looking redder than a radish.
Vojtech Ruzicka has already cashed three times in this series and has 17k in chips.
