WSOP Notebook: Another One Drop entry and more

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 27, 2012 Posted in WSOP News | No Comments »

Today we are going to stick with yesterday’s controversial hand in the $50k Poker Players Championship as the main topic of discussion, and look at some of the debate that has been raging since it first came to light (a sincere thanks to Donnie Peters from for doing such a fantastic job of reporting the hand as it happened). I’ll also bring you up to speed on the One Drop entry list, which once again grew overnight.

$50k Players Championship controversy

Yesterday we gave you the specifics on what will likely go down as one of the most controversial hands of poker in the modern era. Today I want to revisit the hand, but this time from a different perspective, and take a look at what some players and media types feel the ruling should have been.

The general consensus seems to be that the hand should not be replayed from the flop on with Mosseri and Yakovenko holding about 150,000 chips each (as the first floor-person ruled) but that the results should stand but only for the valid pot-sized bet that Yakovenko made.

In addition to the poker ruling, many people feel Mosseri’s antics (talking about his hand, questioning the rail, and even allowing a player to see his cards) should have been penalized.

Tobias Reinkemeier adds his name to One Drop list

Yesterday it was Antonio Esfandiari and today yet another player has been semi-confirmed for the $1,000,000 buy-in Big One for One Drop tournament scheduled to take place July 1 at the World Series of Poker.
