Tim Reilly KO’s wife in Planet Hollywood

There could well be another pro sleeping on the couch this week, as the second big husband KO’s wife story emerged this year, with Tim and Ness Reilly clashing at the WSOP Circuit event at Planet Hollywood on the Vegas Strip – husband Tim sending his wife to the rail with the $192,152 first prize on the horizon.

Just last month PokerTube reported on the fate awaiting João Simão after knocking out his wife Luíza at the final table of the partypoker LIVE Latin American Poker Championships Uruguay Super High Roller.

The curious situation saw João and his wife Luíza battling it out 3-handed with Fabrizio Gonzalez for the tile and a huge chunk of cash, the married couple clashing in a hand which João won, sending his wife to the rails in 3rd and prompting a ‘win it or sleep on the couch’ warning from his better half. João, however, lost out to Gonzalez and we can only imagine what happened next!

Similarly, Tim and Ness Reilly were hoping for a joint final table appearance in Vegas this week – and things were looking rosy until short-stacked Ness’ all-in was called…by her husband! Despite his earlier lovely tweet about the ‘hottest chick in the field’

…the two crossed swords and, according to the WSOP’s live reporter, Ness’ re-raise ‘was folded back around to Tim, who had about 100 big blinds. He reportedly went into the tank for “a minute” before eventually calling with the 3 3.’

With Ness tabling A 10, the race was on, but a flop of Q 3 2, looked like the sleeping on the couch option was the most likely. Indeed, despite Ness turning a wheel draw, the river bricked for the fairer half of the couple and she was unceremoniously busted from the event in 46th place from the huge 610-player field, worth $3,248.

With Tim unable to turn his wife’s chips into more than 26th spot and a $5,856 payday, we’re guessing the actual number from Tim’s tweet a couple of weeks ago could well be zero for some time to come…
