Michael Kolkowicz opened for 115,000 under the gun, and Romain Nardin called in the next seat. Raffaele Sorrentino came along from the big blind, and the three saw a {j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop. Kolkowicz bet 225,000, and only Sorrentino called. Both checked the {2-Clubs}, and the river was a {7-Diamonds}. Sorrentino checked and saw his opponent bet 540,000. Sorrentino went into the tank for a couple of minutes, and Kolkowicz called a clock.

"You take seven minutes every hand and now you call the clock," Sorrentino said. "I'm gonna call the clock on your every hand, now."

When Sorrentino's time was almost up, he folded.
