H.Dao Takes one away from Ken Rawlinson

Three People were in a hand and the flop was already laid out when H. Dao went all in for over 15 K.
Ken Rawlinson called and did not see Ryan Mostafa’s hand and exposed his cards briefly.
A player tried to protect the cards from being seen and pushed them back toward Rawlinson.
The floor was called and the decision was made that Ryan did not have the right to see the cards because no one else was in the hand however Rawlinson would be given a 1 round penalty.
Ryan folded and  was not allowed to see the cards and  Rawlinson was given a 1 round penalty for exposing his cards prematurely  H.Doa doubled up and now has 40 k plus. After the hand I asked Ryan if he would have won the hand and he answered no.
