Martin Finger will chop a min-cash with Andrew Badecker after both were eliminated in the same hand, but on separate tables. Tournament rules on the EPT state that if a more than one player bust during the same hand of hand-for-hand play, but all on separate tables, they will chop the money of the first payout.
There were three all-in hands on the same deal. This hand was the second of three all ins to be called out by tournament director Toby Stone.
The hand started with a Finger raise to 10,000 and a Jesse Martin three-bet to 29,500 from the small blind. Finger responded by shoving all in for 189,500 and after some thought Martin called, causing Finger to wince.
The board ran to make Martin two pair.
After that, Stone walked a few feet over to Badecker's table where he was all in. Badecker raised to 10,000 on the button with right about 135,500 behind. Mikhail Petrov reraised all in from the big blind with his stack of around 280,000. Badecker had tanked long and hard before finally making the call.
The flop gave Petrov the lead with the falling. The turn left Badecker needing just an ace on the river, but he couldn't find it when the fell on the end.
Finger and Badecker chopped up the €15,000 for 96th place and took home €7,500 each.
