Two Queen Of Clubs Dealt On Flop At Aria Super High Roller Cash GameJuly 2, 2015 8:33 am
One of the strangest sights ever witnessed at a poker table was seen at this year’s High Roller Cash Game held at the Aria casino in Las Vegas, after a dealer laid out a flop consisting of two queen of clubs. Even more bizarrely, during the $250,000 minimum buy-in cash game neither the dealer, nor any of the top pros around the table noticed the faulty deal, which included such pros as Scott Seiver, Patrik Antonius, and Andrew Robl. However, the incident didn’t go unnoticed by the TV commentator, who said:
“We have an ace, queen, queen. But I thought we saw two queen of clubs.”
After the floor pointed out the mishap, the hand was subsequently ruled dead and all funds returned to the players.
During the surreal hand involving Doug Polk and Dan Colman, Polk raised the pot and received a call from Colman, with the dealer subsequently laying out a As-Qc-Qc flop. Polk then raised forcing a fold from Colman and the $6,400 pot was pushed Polk’s way. A few moments later, however, Polk looked totally surprised to be told of the incident which appears to have been the result of a faulty pack. As one player then pointed out:
“How did we all miss that?”
Doug Polk subsequently appeared somewhat irate to have to hand back the winnings, but his complaints did not last long as the following hand he was dealt K-K and was in action against Andrew Robl with A-Q. With both players all-in preflop to create a $255,000 pot and agreeing to run the hand twice, Polk took the first half pot after the the dealer laid out a Q-8-5-Q-K board, and the 5-1-4-5-8 second board also went his way to secure the huge win.
