Cash game poker night in america
This hand was over a year ago with Alec Torelli
Recently Doug Polk posted on his channel with some creative editing
Alec had two 5K that are hidden from the dealer and every player but the player to his right.

This is where it get interesting. Mid thought he was playing for $15K and he is really playing for $25K because chips were hidden. He did not ask for a count. He said he would not have pushed if he knew the count. He had ATo. He is kind stuck as he knows he is probably beat and the bigger bet is more likely to get a fold. He also could be on AA KK wanting to look weak.
It was not clear if PNIA would even let them cut a deal.
One of the points made is it would not be fair to the folds as they might have played if the bet was 15K. One had AJs. Up till now it is not clear if the floor / PNIA will even let them cut a deal. Floor said if I rule it would be all in.
One of the other players said to the floor you need to make a ruling here and called the clock.
Floor quickly ruled all in stands.
UTG with AQo calls and wins a big pot
Was that the correct ruling?
Secondary was it correct play?
Secondary was Alec angle shooting?
