Talk about frustration! Estelle Denis must have run to the nearest poker supplies store she could find to stock up on poker card guards after what happened to her at this event at the WSOP. She called all in against J.C. Tran, winner of 2 WSOP bracelets, who bet $32,000 pre-flop. The dealer sweeps her cards in and mucks them, and though Denis tries to get them back, the Vegas rules stand. Although it was the dealer’s mistake, players are responsible for protecting their cards; she did not protect hers and therefore she’s out. She does get her “all in chips” back but loses the hand.
Watch this video a few times. Then make sure you order some poker card guards so that this NEVER happens to you!
