At the table last night, there was a massive angle shoot that I have to share because it practically put me on tilt.
I'm not actually involved in the hand although I did stick up for the old guy.
Hand is heads up. At the river, the old guy checks. The 28-30 year old pro on the button puts out a stack of 90 and whispers to the dealer all-in. The old guy puts out a stack that is close to 90 quickly and doesn't say call. He is obviously just trying to call the 90. Dealer then puts out the all-in button and simultaneously the guy turns over rivered trips. The old man objects saying he didn't know he was all-in. Pro goes ballistic.
Floor comes over and rules the guy only has to call the 90 as the all-in wasn't clear. Pro objects.
Floor convenes with all supervisors (other than shift manager) and returns with the same ruling. Pro objects.
Shift manager comes over and RULES THE SAME WAY! Pro objects.
Shift manager hears the same story again and now overturns his OWN RULING and forces the old guy to pay off a $600+ bet. Old guy doesn't even pay the bet for at least a minute. Then pays it and quickly leaves.
This old guy can dump 6-7k in 2/5 over a weekend and now he'll probably go elsewhere. Very nice guy too.
Kid just smiles ear to ear after its all said and done. Absolute douchebag.
Another pro and I instantly racked up and left/changed tables. I even tried to chase down the old guy to apologize about how bad the ruling was but couldn't find him.
Floor even told us later that he knew that ruling was very, very bad, but he can't object his supervisor's ruling.
