Chop for Minchev and Hardy

Chop for Minchev and Hardy

Some colourful language and a turn reprieve for Tsami Minchev (right) just now, as he moved all in preflop for 14,800 in the small blind after button Philip Hardy opened for 2,500.

Hardy called his short stacked opponent with a dominating Ad Kh; Minchev showed down Ac 8d.

The board: 9h 5d 5h 9h Ts. Chop!

“You flipping lucky chap!*” announced Hardy, good-naturedly. The friendly table continued with the banter as stacks remained roughly unchanged.
