Action folded to the player on the button who raised to 525. Alan Meltzer made the call from the small blind as did Annette Obrestad from the big blind.
The flop came and action grinded to a halt for a good few minutes. Meltzer finally went to reach for his water bottle and the dealer asked if he meant to check. Meltzer looked confused and admitted that he had forgotten he was even in the hand. Even though he was first to act, in the midst of his confusion, he tossed his cards into the muck. Obrestad checked the action over to the button who bet 750. Obrestad then raised to 2,300 and the button opted to fold his hand and Obrestad took the pot.
