Painter Takes a Hit


On a flop of {3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, an opponent in middle position checked to Jameson Painter who led out for 1,625. The opponent check-raised, throwing out three T1,000 chips, but as per the WSOP rules, he was required to meet the minimum raise, which was 3,250.

Painter called the 3,250, then both players checked down both the turn of the {2-Clubs} and the river {2-Spades} before the player showed {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. Painter mucked his hand.

Almost at the same time, Phil Hellmuth, who had been broken from the secondary feature table, arrived with his short stack, but a bellowing cry of "COCKTAILS, 275!" brought our attention to the stack of AJ Gambino, who's now on almost 99,000 in chips! For the record, Gambino was not the one screaming across the room.
