5 Minutes on the River


There's an early-position bet from Chris Hinchcliffe (above) of 2,500 on a board of Kc Kc Kc Kc, there's a raise to 6,000 from a player in middle position, a fold from Giuseppe Petrillo on the button, and Hinchcliffe finds a call. There's 21,000 now in the pot.

The river is Kc ... and the river slows to a trickle, as two minutes go off the clock before Hinchcliffe puts his last 7,200 chips in the middle, all-in.

His opponent builds a dam and totally stops the river as he takes only 3 seconds shy of three minutes to decide to hold on to his 40,000 stack, and he folds.
