WOW! I haven't watched that video. Thanks! It's an incredible situation, the dealer must be fired!! There are bad dealers even in WSOP tournaments. I remmeber a WPT dealer in Barcelona Casino giving a pot to a player who had AK against AQ with JJ338 in the board!! They should play more poker

nice one again i think the dealer maded dumb mistake but u must protect your card and hold them in the hands but not hold them near dealer so its dumb but also big lesson for this lady in future i think she not do the same moves nad hold her aa in th teehts but if at this position Helmuth was i think he will broke the dealer nose good luck all
I agree that the onus is on the player to protect their cards, however I would ask one question.
Supposing that happened on teh final table where cameras are there, and players must show their cards to the cameras before they act. What would have happened then ? There would be 100% absolute proof that the player did indeed have aces.
Personally, i think that her chips should have been returned to her and her hand declared dead. The remainder of the players should then have played on and she wouldn't have lost her chips. losing a hand like AA when its no fault of your own is bad. To then take her chips through no fault of her own is, for me disgusting.

That is too friggin sick. At our local poker tournament league, the players are the dealers so it is not uncommon to have misdeals or dealer mistakes, and when you turn over your cards to find something nice before giving them back to be reshuffled it definitely hurts. But to be in a major tourney and have the dealer muck AA? %[email protected]#$%^&^%$#@! Protect your hole cards!

Protect your cards, but wow would I had been pissed, she was pretty much short stack right? or she prob would had doubled up, pretty sick thou. I guess is her fault and the dealers fault. Also feel sorry for the dealer thou, he prob got fired
