Will Kassouf and Shaun Deeb have some history already and have been seated at the same table for most of the day.
Kassouf raised to 2,500 from the cutoff and was called by Deeb in the big blind. The flop came , Deeb check-called the 3,200 continuation-bet of Kassouf. The turn brought them the , now Deeb lead out for 5,500 and Kassouf folded.
After the hand, Martin Kabrhel took his seat on Deeb's right and they were both visibly not happy about it. It turned into a spat almost immediately. Kabrhel has just won Event #9: €100,000 No-Limit Hold'em King's Super High Roller for €2,624,340.
Things like "Go back to the US!", "You talk too much!" and more like that were being thrown around between them.
Kabrhel raised to 5,000 from the cutoff and Deeb three-bet to 15,500 on the button. Kabhrel shoved and Deeb grabbed some chips but before he said call, Kabrhel had already flipped over his cards. The floor was called over and Kabhrel started arguing that Deeb had made the forward motion. Deeb argued that he just grabbed some chips from his stack but didn't make the movement to put them over the line.
The floor told them to finish the hand and that she would deal with the situation after. Deeb called.
The board ran out for them to split the pot.
Kabrhel received a one-round penalty for exposing his cards too early. Kabrhel kept arguing his case with the floor and the tournament director but they stood their grounds. Kassouf tried to put his two cents forward too but was dealt with quickly.
