Haven't seen it yet, but that should be a penalty.

That is ridiculous. It should be at least an orbit.

I imagine they did the absolutely minimum penalty allowed because it was at the featured table and they wanted to minimize the exposure, but knew they HAD to do something.

I was shocked, too. I always thought it was a 1 hour penalty in the ME, but maybe I'm wrong.

I don't think there's any penalty based on time...especially one hour long. I mean if you do it based on time, a penalty in the first level 300 bbs deep, is going to be a lot less significant than an hour long penalty at the final table.

Regardless, a penalty for this type of infraction seems rather dumb. I mean if a guy is dumb enough to check behind the nuts, then I don't want him missing any hands at all.

Like if the player purposely goes out of their way to 'collude' then there should be a huge penalty. If you watch this hand, it's quite obvious that there's no collusion, and that Darvin had a reason to check behind the nuts.

Obviously it's stupid to check the nuts, but it's clear to me that he's not soft playing the guy.

He was outed by the other players. It appeared the floor/dealer didn't pick up on it.
