Robbi didn’t have anything spectacular to hand, holding just a Jack and Four against Garrett’s Eight and Seven. Though, she matched his all-in bet for the river card. She won the hand with just a Jack high card, which stunned players at the table, but immediately prompted some claims of cheating.

The situation is reportedly being investigated by the casino where the event was held, but Robbi believes she’ll be “vindicated” and wants to take on Garrett in a heads-up game once things have been cleared up.

“Garrett, I’ve got an idea. After I’m vindicated, let’s go heads up,” Robbi tweeted afterwards. “The whole world can watch me read you all day.”

Given that Robbi said that the pair had clashed off-camera over the incident, and Garrett has yet to respond to her offer, it remains to be seen if they’ll settle things.
