Jomeen Crippled; Chair Kicked


A couple of profanities and a violently kicked chair is what occurred right after the following hand played out.

It was a blind versus blind situation that saw Karim Jomeen and Oliver Speidel take to a {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop. Speidel led for 75,000 and Jomeen promptly raised it up to 200,000. Speidel then jammed for his 674,000-chip stack and after some thought, Jomeen made the call.

Jomeen: {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Speidel: {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

It was a couple of over-cards for Speidel and top-pair for Jomeen. The {5-Clubs} was safe, but when the {10-Clubs} hit the river, this prompted Jomeen to scream out a certain profanity in agony. He then went to the nearest empty tournament tabled and kicked the chair in way that sounded like it must have hurt his foot. Jomeen was left crippled and now sits in his seat looking very unhappy.
