Chris Johnson, shown here playing in the Mixed Max event.

Chris Johnson, in the big blind, check-called a bet of 9,200 after the turn on a board of {4-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. The river paired the board with the {4-Spades}, and Johnson checked once more. His opponent bet 13,100, and Johnson asked for a count on his remaining chips. Shortly after getting it, Johnson put his opponent all in for his last 76,000.

The player went deep into the tank, seeming truly torn about the decision. He thought for a few minutes before he finally said "time" to the dealer.

"He called time on himself?" the dealer asked the player in Seat 9.

After the floor was called, the clock was started. With about 10 seconds left in the countdown, the player finally folded. Johnson turned over the {7-Diamonds} as he mucked his cards, and the players next to him immediately began negotiating a side bet about what Johnson's mystery card was.
