Hold On There, Buddy ...
The tenth event of the 2011 WSOP was oh so close to being over, but it proved to be a false alarm in the end, much to the embarrassment of Geffrey Klein.
Eddie Blumenthal raised to 200,000 from the button; Klein reraised to 550,000 and Blumenthal four-bet shoved for the rest of his chips. Klein asked for a count - it was 3.43 million, to be exact - and after contemplating for almost a minute, Klein made the crying call, but found himself ahead.
Klein thought he had won it and started high-fiving and hugging his friends on the rail, but tournament supervisor Bob Smith had to break the news to him over the PA. "Sorry guys, it's a chop," he said.
Suffice it to say, Klein looked a little sheepish as he sat back down. And with that, heads-up play continues!
