Wigg Doubles with Quads; Binger Must Show


We spotted Anton Wigg all in for 42,000 on the river of a board reading {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}. Nick Binger was in the tank and he thought long and hard for several minutes. Finally, Binger made the call and Wigg turned over the {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for the nuts with quads. The dealer prompted Binger to show his hand, but he questioned it at first. The dealer immediately summoned the floor, who happened to be standing right by and the ruling was given.

Per rules of the European Poker Tour, all all-in showdowns must be shown and Binger's hand had to be tabled. He turned over the {A-Spades}{5-Spades} and then the dealer mucked his losing hand. Afterwards, the table began commenting as a whole about how bad they thought that rule was.
