Event 19: Reslock Douses Clib's Fire

$400 + $50 H.O.R.S.E.   

Playing Stud Hi/Lo:

On the river, Chris Reslock bet (40k) sending Jim Clib into the tank.  He stacked out some chips, asked "How much is it?", was told "40k", then put a stack of 100k into the pot, without saying anything else.

The dealer counted out 80k, which would be a raise, then returned the extra 20k to Jim.

This is where it got strange.  Jim had apparently just intended to call, but since he didn't say that, his raise stood.  He said he just intended to call, but Chris was a bit concerned he was being 'played'.

Chris just called the raise, showing a hidden pair of Jacks to go with his open pair of 7s for two pair.  Jim tossed his cards on the table showing a split pair of Tens, then shoved his cards toward the muck.

Jim then tangled with James Ingram.  James was all-in on 4th street and when the cards ran out, James made a straight and a low to scoop the pot from Jim.
