Boutin Blows Up; Mizzi is Onnit

A huge hand involving Onnit representative Sorel Mizzi and Burt Boutin played out right before the break. The hand left Boutin fuming and Mizzi with a huge chip stack.

We arrived at the table with a {j-Spades}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop already out on the felt and with Mizzi checking in middle position and Boutin checking behind from the button.

Turn: {10-Diamonds}

Mizzi checked here and Boutin led for 10,500. Mizzi then check-raised to 32,000 and it was back on Boutin, who instantly re-raised to 102,000. Mizzi then went all in and this when Boutin got upset - not at Mizzi or anyone at the table, but at himself. "You've got ace-king," he said. "This is just F***ed up."

"Why did you do this to yourself Burt!" Boutin said before claiming the he has to call. Mizzi then tabled {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} for the Broadway straight, while Boutin flipped over his {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for the lower end of the straight. Boutin was not happy with the whole hand and wasn't excited to see the ESPN cameras directed at his face. "This is a real blow up here," he said as he now sits behind a short stack.

Mizzi, who now sits behind a stack of almost 350,000, can be seen below, interviewed earlier in the summer by PokerNews' Sarah Grant.
