Dermot Blain was facing a flop of in the small blind. His opponent was Willie Tann and there was nearly 10,000 in the pot.
Blain announced “Four thousand two hundred.” The dealer misheard and announced 2,200 before being quickly corrected. Tann wanted to know how much Blain had left and he held up his remaining two T5000 chips with a grin.
Tann mucked his hand and Blain won a vital pot.
