Level 11: 600/1,200 (1,200)
Vitalii Seman fired out for 16,500 into a pot of 31,000 with the 9♣J♠9♠6♠2♥ on the board after the river. Andrea La Monica jammed for 55,600 and Seman went into the tank for around five minutes until La Monica called the clock.
The floor promptly came and the clock started after a brief discussion with the dealer.
“Five, four, three, two, one…” the dealer counted down.
“Call,” said Seman as he threw a chip in before the floor announced that his hand was dead.
La Monica turned over the A♠T♠ for the nut-flush. Seman nearly made a sick laydown but instead witnessed his stack dwindle as he turned over the K♠Q♠ for the second-nut flush.
A couple of the players at the table were either shocked that both players had a strong flush or that Seman nearly folded.
Andrea La Monica – 162,000
Vitalii Seman – 22,000
