TV Crew & Dealer Accidentally Reveal Wilson's Card to Opponent

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

David Tuthill opened for 80,000 from the cutoff only to have Daniel Wilson three-bet to 180,000 from the small blind. William Cole then flatted from the big, Tuthill got out of the way, and the flop came down {2-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. Wilson checked, Cole bet 260,000, and Wilson called.

Both players then checked the {5-Diamonds} turn before the {4-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. Wilson took the opportunity to lead out for 365,000, and it was enough to get Cole to fold. Wilson then showed just the {2-Diamonds} before being pushed the pot.

The television crew, which had been filming the hand, then made the decision that they wanted to document both of Wilson's hole cards, which is permitted by WSOP rules. To do so the crew puts a handheld camera on the felt and the dealer secretly lifts the card so only the camera can see. In this instance the camera was put a little too far out on the felt, and the dealer lifted the cards a bit high so that Cole could see what Wilson's other card was.

Isaac Baron pointed it out, but by this time the cards had been mucked. Cole admitted that he had seen what Wilson's other card had been and the matter was left at that.
