Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

She'll Say it in Braille?

The player in the hijack raised to 600 only to have the cutoff immediately re-raise to 1,650. When action got to Maria "Maridu" Mayrinck in the big blind she wanted to see how much the cutoff had in his stack and politely asked him to move his arms that were covering it, but found that he didn't speak English and didn't understand her request. A couple others at the table eventually got him to understand what she was asking and he obliged her request. After seeing how many chips he had Maridu called the 1,650 while the hijack got out of the way.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and both players checked. When the {2-Clubs} came on the turn Maridu tossed out a bet of 1,700 and the other player opted to fold. After the hand was over someone pointed out to Maridu that the player spoke Spanish so she quickly explained to him in Spanish what she had been asking him during the hand. It seemed Maridu just wanted to make sure he understood that she had harmless intentions in asking how many chips he had behind.

After the conversation ended another player joked, "Now you have to say it in French!" to which Maridu replied, "I'll say it in braille if I have to!" which elicited a bit of laughter from her tablemates.
