On the heels of the horrible Tilt, ESPN is showing some previously unaired poker action, the 2004 US Championship in Atlantic City. One of the first hands featured a KsKc vs. Kd9d. The flop came K high, with two hearts and a diamond on board. The player with two diamonds went all in and was, of course, called by the player with the cowboys. Norman Chad and Lon McEachern (sp?) went on and on about how the player with the pair of Ks was drawing dead. I looked at his hand, looked at the board, looked at his hand...looked at the board. Running diamonds, anyone? The only question is did the announcers fumble this or did ESPN simply post the incorrect hole cards? I've read other reports that claimed that ESPN had, in the past, guessed at holdings or relied on players' recollections when the lipstick cameras did not capture them properly for whatever reason. This may have been one of those cases.
