Lubas Triples Up, Mrakes Doubles

poolshir • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante
Michal Lubas

Michal Lubas shoved from the early position for 20,400 and Ralph Stobbe announced a raise but then put in 25,000. The floor was called over as a discussion ensued about what should happen now. The floor came over and the dealer explained what had happened. The tournament director was also added to the discussion as some people on the table had their opinions on the situation too.

In the end, the tournament director ruled that as Stobbe had announced a raise, Stobbe had to put in the minimum raise. Stobbe didn't protest and put in 41,600 as the raise. Michal Mrakes then proceeded to shove on the button and Theodoros Aidonopoulos and Ting Ho folded their blinds. Ho was clearly not in agreement with the ruling and let it be heard.

Stobbe tanked and after a while, he seemed confused as he said he was waiting for the action but the dealer advised him that Mrakes had gone all-in too. Stobbe asked how much more it was and the dealer confirmed Mrakes had shoved for 62,000 in total. Stobbe called.

Michal Lubas: {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Michal Mrakes: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Ralph Stobbe: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} for Lubas to triple up. After paying Lubas, Mrakes had 40,600 left and Stobbe had to pay that double-up, leaving himself with 50,000 at the end.
