Rosadoni Doubles and Monnette Gets Angry

John Monnette

From under the gun, Giovanni Rosadoni rasied to 12,500. Action folded to John Monnette in the big blind, and he tossed in the call.

The flop came down {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Monnette checked. Rosadoni checked behind.

The turn was the {K-Hearts}, and Monnette led for 16,500. Rosadoni began to stack up his chips for a raise and slid out 46,500. Monnette called.

The river card was he {10-Clubs} and completed the board. After Monnette checked, Rosadoni moved all in for 75,000 flat. Monnette studied, then called.

When Monnette called, Rosadoni was to show first, but he paused and shook his head. He then showed the {A-Clubs}, shook his head once or twice more, then showed the {7-Spades}. He had flopped trips, and Monnette couldn't beat it.

Monnette was agitated a big with what could be deemed as a slowroll from Rosadoni and tossed his hand into the muck. His hand did hit the top of the fanned stub of cards, but the tournament director instructed the dealer to grab the cards and expose them, as all all-in hands must be shown. When the dealer began to slide the cards off the top of the pile, Monnette objected and claimed the cards were in the muck.

A second floor person was called in to make the ruling and it was deemed that Monnette's hand must be shown as they were retrievable. Monnette objected some, but the cards were tabled anyway to reveal the {K-Clubs}{J-Spades}. Right before the hand was turned over, Monnette said, "I don't even know if those were my cards," but the floor claimed they were indeed his. At any rate, Monnette's hand was then mucked completely as Rosadoni won the pot to double up.

After the hand, Monnette said something unheard to Rosadoni, and Rosadoni touched Monnette on his arm while saying something back. Monnette then said, "Don't touch me," a couple of times to get the point across before the two went on with play.
