We heard two players in the midst of a heated discussion and looked over to see a board of , with a large pile of chips in the middle of the table. Alan Larson had his flipped up for a flopped set, and his opponent was desperately pleading his case to the dealer and anyone else who would listen.
Apparently, after a bet of 475 by Larson, the unnamed opponent had gone all-in and mistakenly thought he saw Larson fold his hand. The unnamed opponent, believing he has won the pot, tossed his cards towards the muck as well and waited for the dealer to push the chips his way.
Unfortunately for him, Larson had not mucked and his sixes were there for all to see. The unnamed opponent claimed vociferously that he had held the nut flush and begged the dealer to retrieve his hand. Larson showed no mercy however and said "we all know the rules kid, if you had it you would have turned it over." A floorman was called over and much to the dismay of the unnamed player, his hand was declared dead, as it had touched the muck. We may never know if he truly held two spades in his hand and the player was sent to the rail with the baddest of bad-beat stories.
Larson doubled-up on the hand and now sits with 6,975 chips.
