Montout Pulls a Strange Line

Event #1: $250 NLHE
Level 20: Blinds 5,000-10,000 BBA 10,000
11 / 216 Remaining

Sebastien Montout raised to 26,000 from under the gun and Karthik Ramakrishnan then pushed for 209,000 in the small blind. Fraddy Gonzalez in the big blind tanked but folded and Montout then tanked as well. He tried to pull back his raising chips to get a count on his entire stack, which left all players at the table somewhat confused.

Montout was covered by a fraction of the big blind and the clock was then called on him. He tank-folded and both players exposed a jack. Montout was given a warning that a similar move would result in a mandatory call.

Fraddy Gonzalez – 400,000
Karthik Ramakrishnan – 230,000
Sebastien Montout – 180,000
