Yockey Wins a Massive Pot Without Showing

[user340093] • Nível 10: 500-1,000, 0 ante

We picked up the action on the river with a lot of chips already lying in front of Bryce Yockey and Stuart Rutter, who was in position. There were chunks of 2,500, then 3,200 and 8,000 apiece when they made it to the final betting round on the {J-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} board.

Yockey checked to Rutter who fired 14,000 and Yockey check-raised all in for 20,000 effectively. Rutter spent a few minutes thinking until somebody at the table called a clock. Rutter was given 25 seconds and a five-second verbal countdown to make his decision.

He protested that it wasn't enough considering the high board and a weird spot. Nonetheless, he had to act within the given time and he failed to do so, so his hand was declared dead. Yockey took down the massive pot without showing anything and climbed to 158,000. He's presumably the current tournament chip leader.
