Clock Called and Second Floor Men Called for a Double Ruling
A double ruling took place with three well-known pros. The already ran out on the board and there were only two players in the pot.
Wagner Wysotchanski put Athanasios Polychronopoulos to the test betting 35,000 into a pot of already over 90,000 in chips. It was most of Polychronopoulos' chips.
The clock was eventually called after a very long tank from Polychronopoulos and the floor counted down to zero when Polychronopoulos then started to put his chips in the middle for a call.
A second ruling needed to be called because Wysotchanski said: "What's the point of the clock if it went to zero and he was allowed to make the call?"
The second-floor person ruled that Polychronopoulos had the right to take a second to put the chips in the middle after the zero was counted by the first-floor person.
Shaun Deeb also at the table said: "Yeah the player has time to act after the floor said zero."
Wysotchanski mucked his hand without showing and Polychronopoulos showed as he scooped the pot.
Wilt Among The Top Stacks
