Attenborough went deep into the tank. He put his hands on his head and rubbed his eyes before counting out his stack.

"I love this hand," remarked Attenborough after two minutes, contemplating his opponent's holdings. "If you have king-queen..."

Attenborough pondered both his and his opponent's holdings, leaning on the table with his head in his hands.

"This would be pretty cool if you called time," said Attenborough as the clock ticked into nine minutes. "This is tough."

"He's going to show me..." he said, leaning back in his chair and muttering to himself. ""So many combos of value," he said after around 12 minutes.

"It's just when I get to this river it's like...," he trailed off again. "You do have some kings."

Eventually, Attenborough folded.

"You bluffed me hey? F*ck," said Attenborough. "Nice hand. Should have called that. Nine-seven suited?"

"I'm interested to see what you had," said Jorstad

"I just didn't know if you jammed queen-jack off on the river," said Attenborough.
