Woman Gives Birth During Poker Tourney - Husband Comes To Her "Rescue"

Tags: Aussie Millions, Katrina Sheary, pregnant.
Posted on Monday, February 01, 2016 by "T".

Pregnant Aussie Player Katrina Sheary was in the preliminary events of the 
"Aussie Millions" 2016 poker tournament a week ago. Amidst the poker competition, it did not take long before she went into labor. Since she was unable to take her post in the tournament the next day, Peter Sheary, her husband, was allowed by the event's directors to play instead of her.

The Aussie Millions is Katrina's favorite poker tournament and despite being a few weeks near her due, this year's competition held at the Crown Casino was something she did not want to miss. Unfortunately, the baby had plans of its own as the pregnant Aussie player started having premature labor which required her to be brought to the hospital as the competition was nearing its last play of the day.

The unexpected event resulted in a standstill for event officials as Katrina still had 16BB in her stack but needed to move away from the action due to her unscheduled child delivery.

The next day, after having given birth, Katrina's husband was allowed by the tournament directors to continue in her place instead of allowing her stack to blind off. Of course, not everyone was delighted with the late substitution and some competitors have even aired their views regarding the incident such as that of Liv Boeree whose tweeter post read: "Surely fairest solution for all involved is to pay out the ICM value of her stack?"

Eventually, all matters of concerns have been dissipated after it had been pointed out that the tournament officials decisively dealt with the unexpected eventuality, especially when considering the Terms and Conditions of the tournament which states:

2.13: At the discretion of the Tournament Director, a Tournament entrant may transfer his/her entry to another person, provided that person is entitled to enter the Tournament in accordance with [other eligibility requirements] and he/she has not already entered the Tournament.

2.13.1: Where a substitute is nominated, entry into the Tournament will be transferred to the substitute and the substitute will act on behalf of the entrant, commencing or continuing play in the entrant's stead and using any applicable bank of Tournament chips allocated to or accumulated by the entrant.

The husband, Peter, euphoric for the birth of his baby boy, ended the tournament in 25th place and managed to score a total payout of $6,495. Despite the winnings and the new baby in their midst, it is actually their poker story that will or may forever live on.

It would be interesting to know what cards she was holding when the contractions started. I would open a whole new category of poker tells Tongue
A very select one but still every information is useful in the modern day poker environment.

Dunno, but Liv Boeree is an obnoxious bitch 4 sure. I hope someone took a time and told it to her when she tweeted about this.

G'day mates

I watched a British game show that Liv Boeree was on, and she proved herself to be a lying, two faced, back stabbing, bitch of the highest degree.
The way she screwed this poor guy over really made me dislike her.
I still can not stand her to this very day because of seeing her play on the one TV show.
It is on YouTube if you want to look it up, here is a link to the screw over.

Dear Ronin, would like to watch that video so if you share the link would really appreciate it buddy... never mind you where on the verge to post it so thanks for it.

G'day mate

The link in the post above is only of the last few minutes of the television program.
If you want to watch the entire show I think you can use YouTube to find the entire show.
You will she how she really screws this poor guy over.
He even tells her that he would not lie to her in front of his wife and children who are watching them in the audience. She know the guy and his family really needed the money and she bladed him anyway.

Yeah, but on these shows they just play along the script (yes, even game shows have scripts written) unlike on twitter where anybody is free to do anything stupid and mean.
Of course she is like the Marie-Antoinette of the poker world, but that we knew already without further proof.
