Missing Chips on Table 9

• Nivo 5: 200-400, 0 ante

Evidently, Chance Kornuth dropped a few chips a little while ago, and right after he did, he picked some of them up. Moments ago, there was one more yellow T1,000 chip found under the table, and Kornuth believed that it was his. They called the floor to the table.

A few players, including Jason Mercier, joked that they could use a few "lost chips" as well, and the floor left to rectify the situation. While the floor was gone, Kornuth called a 900-chip raise from Sam Stein, and the two took a flop of {2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Kornuth check-called 1,200 from Stein, and both players knuckled after the {10-Spades} turned. The {7-Spades} completed the board, and Kornuth led out for 900. Stein raised to 3,700, and Kornuth folded.

"Are they ever going to make a ruling?" Kornuth thought aloud after the hand.

"We should just call them back," Mercier suggested.

"Yeah," Kornuth agreed. "Your sarcastic comment before probably didn't help."

Mercier apologized, and when the floor returned, he was the one who spoke up.

"We're all agreeing that he should get it," Mercier told him.

The floorperson agreed, and then tossed the yellow T1,000 chip back in front of him. Another player from across the table threw in yet another yellow chip, which bewildered the table.

"There's multiple?" the floorperson asked.

Apparently, a second chip had rolled under the table. A player in the one-seat made another joke, and Mercier pretended to give Kornuth his whole stack. Even Kornuth got a kick out of that, and the situation is finally resolved.
