A few minutes ago, the following tweet from the reigning WSOP Main Event champion popped up on our feed:

Ryan RiessWe played 150/300 blinds for the first 20 minutes instead of 50/100. George Danzer loses half of his stack during those 20 minutes #brutal

We promptly went to investigate the situation, and when we arrived, Ryan Riess was involved in a pot with Martin Finger and Bill Klein. Riess had let out for 6,400 on a board of {8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, Klein called, and Finger was in the tank. He eventually folded, and Riess revealed {3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for a full house.

Klein flashed the {j-Diamonds} for trip jacks, then mucked.

"That's my second flopped set in a row," Riess told us, grinning.

He then filled us in on the details of his tweet, saying that the tournament clock situated right in front of the table said "Small Blind: 150 Big Blind 300" instead of the current level (50/100) for "twenty minutes."

"Poor George [Danzer] was coolered in four hands," the defending champ said. "I would've gone busto."

Danzer, who won a bracelet in Event #18, offered a simple, wry smile.

Riess is up to 47,000 chips, while Danzer and Klein are both floating around 15,000.
