Ok, not relevant to question, but I have to post this as well...

After cracking the 9-set with the flush, he proceeded to crack aces with the 9-set (boating it) and got the bounty

ok chilly the only thing i can think of, is gman was all in on the turn, but the other playa still had 40 chips left, so when he bet his 40 and cmd cmd man called it was actually him who knocked the playa out, even tho gman one the pot

Thats my only senario,

they went allin but because gman didnt have him cover in chips there was a side pot of 80 chips thats why cmd one the knockout i think, if u play it back im pretty sure thats why, cause cmd had them both covered,

so basically, gman shipped yes all his chips, and every body also but gman didnt have him covered for the bounty but cmd did

The starting stacks show why gmanwicksy cannot get the bounty.

gman has 4,930 chips, opponent has 4,970 chips before paying the blind, it is therefore impossible for gman to bust them - only cripple them - imagine they were heads up.

The bigger stacked player who takes the side pot with 2nd best hand takes the opponents last 40 chips and busts them, so they get the bounty.

Good luck

Hey all!

Ed is 100% correct on this one. Gman did not have the opp that busted's chips covered. Due to this, Gman wins the main pot... the 3rd player in the hand wins the side pot, but since the 3rd player got the loser's last chip, he gets the bounty.

To get a player's bounty, you must take their last chip from them, which in this case unfortunately, gman had 40 chips less than the opp.

Good luck at the tables.
