Event #48: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Deep Stacks Marques and Melogno Tangle

• Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

It's rare for clock to be called on someone not facing a bet, but a hand that threatened to pit the two deepest stacks on Table 450 ended with exactly this happening. Preflop Pedro Marques raised to 22,000, called in two spots, the button (Pablo Melogno) and the big blind. On the {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{6-Spades} flop, the big blind checked, Marques fired 18,000 and Melogno raised to 59,000. The big blind folded and Marques called. Both players checked the {5-Clubs} turn in timely fashion, but the {4-Clubs} river caused Marques to use one virtual timebank card and Melongno all of his.

So long did Melogno tank on the river when it was checked to him that another player at the table called the clock. Melogno was given 30 seconds, and checked his hand before his time ran out, mucking when he saw Marques' {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}.
