Event 54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

The Clock Tiks On

John Eames raised from early position and the table folded around to the blinds who both called. The flop came {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades} prompting a check from the small blind and a check from Sergey Tikhonov in the big blind. Eames bet out 6,500 and the small blind folded. Tikhonov took his time deciding what he wanted to do and in the end made the call.

The {3-Clubs} on the turn paired the board and again Tikhonov checked. Eames fired out 13,200 which prompted the rest of the table to play the waiting game, as Tikhonov went deep into the tank. A couple of minutes went by of Tikhonov measuring out chips before eventually putting out a min raise. Eames thought for awhile then folded his cards.

After the hand Eames pleaded to see one card. All Tikhonov could do was show his dismay that a call wasn't made. Tikhonov even went on to say "call.. call.. call..", causing the rest of the table to comment that that's the most Tikhonov has said in the past two days.
