No-Limit Hold'em

Coming to the river of the {7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades}, there was already more than 80,000 in the pot. Ben Sulsky was on the button, but there was yet another button lying in front of him — the one indicating an all in. Sulsky had his remaining chips stacked in front of him, making the count easily accessible from a distance. It was 93,600.

Sulsky's head was leaning on the rail with his headphones in his ears. Ashton was stretching his arms, trying to figure out what to do. He took a good amount of time before calling, but Sulsky didn't know about that for a few seconds as he'd been trying to escape into another world.

He moved his head up, finally learning of Ashton's call. Sulsky rolled over {K-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for the second nuts, ensured he was going to double up.

Ashton briefly showed his {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a lower flush and shipped the required amount of chips Sulsky's way.
