Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Epparla Tanks

• Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Ramana Epparla was facing an all in on the turn of a board reading {10-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. He thought about it for a long time. In the end he thought about it for too long and another player at the table called the clock on him, the first time we have seen that happen in this tournament.

It was claimed he had been thinking for five minutes but that may have been a slight exaggeration. Epparla had the all in player covered but it was a hefty bet.

The floor arrived and gave Epparla his one minute countdown. With less than ten second to go he released his hand. As his opponent collected the pot he told him, “King jack of hearts.” The flopped straight.
Whatever Epparla folded it seemed he had got away from it running into the nuts.
