Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event
Dag

De Korver Tanks for 12 Minutes; Folds

• Nivå 6: 250-500, 50 ante

Pieter de Korver opened from the cutoff to 1,300 only to have Will Failla three bet to 3,300. De Korver made the call and then check-called 2,200 on the {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop before the {7-Hearts} on the turn was checked through.

The river landed the {10-Diamonds} and de Korver led for 2,500 only to have Failla size up the Dutchman's stack before splashing out five orange 5,000-denomination chips indicating a 25,000-chip bet and effectively putting de Korver all in for his last 19,000.

"That's a sick river!" commented de Korver as he went into the tank. Deep into the tank.

Minute after minute went by ... nine to be exact before de Korver stated, "give me a sec guys to think about it!"

Another two minutes went by before Daniel Negreanu stuck up his hand and called the Tournament Director Robbie Thompson over and pointed to de Korver, "clock! It's been eight minutes!"

De Korver looked at Failla, then back at his hand, then threw them into the muck after deliberating for 12 minutes.
