Former NFL star Richard Seymour finishes impressive 5-day run at World Series of Poker Former NFL All-Pro defensive lineman Richard Seymour gave the World Series of Poker Main Event a run for its money. But in the Super Bowl of poker tournaments, Seymour came up short of the ultimate prize when he was eliminated on Day 5 of the event in 131st place. It was an admirable showing for the three-time Super Bowl champion, who has taken up competitive poker since retiring from football. Seymour will take home $59,295 for his troubles (buy-in was $10,000), well short of the $10 million grand prize.

There was some controversy as the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event over the weekend, and it had the card-playing world buzzing about the ruling.

On Day 7, with 11 players remaining, Dario Sammartino raised to 1.7 million chips with his pocket 10s. Nick Marchington then went all in for 22.2 million with his pocket Queens.

But when Sammartino asked for the dealer to count Marchington's chips to see if he wanted to call the bet, she mistakenly announced it was 17.2 million. Sammartino had called that bet and put in the chips to match it.

When the dealer realized the error, she called over officials to discuss what happened and the hand moved ahead. Sammartino began arguing that it wasn't fair and that he might have acted differently if he knew it was five million chips more in the pot.

Eventually, WSOP VP Jack Effel came over and pointed to a rule that Poker News cited which forced Sammartino to match the 22.3 million chips:

Poker is a game of alert, continuous observation. It is the caller's responsibility to determine the correct amount of an opponent's bet before calling, regardless of what is stated by the dealer or participants. If a caller requests a count but receives incorrect information from the dealer or participants, then places that amount in the pot, the caller is assumed to accept the full correct action & is subject to the correct wager or all-in amount.

Fellow pro Alex Livingston - who's still in at the final table - tweeted his thoughts. He understood the ruling, sympathized with the dealer, but took issue with one of Effel's comments, in which he said, "If you're calling 17, you're calling 22."
