John Monnette is one unhappy camper right now. The dealer who was responsible for the blowup earlier just pushed back into the table, and Monnette was once again pretty upset. He and Chris Tryba asked the floor why the dealer was coming back, but the floor was having none of it.
"He did nothing wrong," the floor stood firm. "I just checked the tapes and saw the whole thing. He did nothing wrong."
We walked to the other table to count chips for just 45 seconds or so, and during that time, Monnette was eliminated by Xuan Liu. He's out in 12th place, and the pay bump up over $10,000 will likely be little consolation.
