Wow, pretty crazy if nobody at all noticed that besides for the producers…

I had to look at the runout for a second to realise but that’s a rough way to bust! 😆

Players own responsibility to read the board properly. The only way he was getting anything from that pot was if the 6 or Q appeared and he should have been fully aware of this going into the river.

OMG ! That was horrible. Unfortunately, if nobody says anything before the cards hit the muck, there's nothing that could be done, rules are rules. I think the first responsible there was the dealer !

If I understood the hand correctly, that player should have shared the pot with another player but he decided to stand up and say goodbye to another player and left the stage is he a professional player? if so, I think he should know that the pot is divided there, especially since there is a dealer who did not stop the player and the administrators go nearby, I think many people are to blame there, like the player himself

Like Jamie Kerstetter wrote on Twitter, it's very likely someone noticed the mistake but said nothing to ensure the payjump.

With all the technology available in freaking 2023, we don't have to rely on human (in)competence all the time so this mistake shouldn't have happened.

At final tables, Just mirror the hand in a computer program like they do in chess matches and let the App announce the winner of the pot.

if he's tabled his hand (not mucked it) it's not his responsibility. The pot should've been chopped!

For them to have taken down the stream right after, it shows they are aware of what happened and are not taking responsibility for it.

Wow, this shouldn't happen in these big events, but now, the players have the obligation to know how to read the table perfectly!

I was watching a live today, I heard this conversation there, a draw, but nobody saw it and the guy got up and left, which lack of attention does not do.

So many people and players looked at the distribution and did not notice anything. Especially sorry for the losing player. Caution, the human factor...

Yeah, that's definitely a great point. Others could have clean mind, they were not in the hand and maybe should see that it is actually a chop.
However it's really interesting to see if one person acting so realistic, how others tend to believe its the reality and the truth. Sometimes better to double-check or ask if you think it's time to.

Exactly. In his mind why don't he kept repeating his outs when it was time to call one at the river?

I blame the tournament organizers and the dealer. I think certain hands rankings & rules are complicated to understand even for the most active poker players, players should be granted the same courtesy as online, to have computer make sure everything is going as it's supposed to.

Poker also gets bad name when they kill the stream, they should have admitted their mistake, paused the tournament, contacted the player and returned play as it was a split pot, as it was.

In all the live tables I have played the Dealer determines the winner not the players. so the dealer was at fault and the players should have spoke up

That was unfortunate. Yes, Pierre should have caught that, but the dealer is responsible to pay the WINNING hand...as Jamie Kerstetter wrote, the other players at the table probably noticed and said nothing in order to profit from the mistake.

There's a longer clip somewhere where you can clearly hear someone say split. Not sure who it is though. Someone not close enough to the action to count probably.

This is probably one of the biggest mistakes in the history of major live tournaments. The casino quickly shut down the stream.

That is sooo bad. Though I made an unfortunate error dealing a live FT more than once. First due to the fans being blow as it was such a hot day I pitched and turned an A to the short stack who would have had AA. He ended up with AQ got it in and lost to KK 😬 I felt sick 🤢. Misreading the board I spoke something else though, sinkable
