Baker Binks Her Flush

We walked up to the table to see Amanda Baker and Nicholas Muraca in a heads up pot on the river, with the board reading {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. There was about 12,000 in the pot, and Muraca checked to Baker, who fired out 6,500. Muraca spent quite some time in the tank, at least two minutes, before the clock was called. The table started complaining that this was the second or third time the clock had to be called on Muraca, who waited until the eight second mark of the countdown to toss in the call.

Baker showed {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a flush on the turn, and Muraca kicked it in, before getting in a low key argument with the player who called the clock on him. The floor came over to break it up, but it appeared that tensions were still high after he left, as the two continued to mumble at each other afterwards. Regardless, Baker took down the nice pot, and is now sitting on over 60,000.
