Sonnenholzner Doesn't Surrender

Martin Kabrhel and Korbinian Sonnenholzner invested 7,500 each to see the     flop and both players checked. On the   turn, Kabrhel bet 6,600 with a self-proclaimed rainbow bet (one chip of each color). Sonnenholzner was having none of it and raised it up to 17,000.

Kabrhel started some table chat once more and folded with the word "surrender", then asked to see a card of his opponent.

"You have to call to see, that's how we play here," an unimpressed Sonnenholzner said while collecting the pot.
