Brian Altman Eliminates Paul Richardson

Level 17
Blinds: 3000-6000 with a 6000 bb ante
Remaining: 60/440

Brian Altman opens to 12,000 and Paul Richardson pauses to the point of having clock called preflop. He uses the full 30 seconds, then calls, leaving himself 12BB behind. Action folds to the 9 seat with 6BB who takes nearly a minute to fold. Everyone else steps aside and off to the flop.


15,000 from Altman, a call from Richardson, with both players checking the [8h] turn.

Altman puts out all his 25k chips on the [4h] river, more than enough to cover Richardson, who looks in anguish. More than two minutes pass, the dealer over and over again flipping the all in button in Altman's direction, then taking it back, before eventually leaving it on the felt.

Two more minutes pass and a player calls clock. Richardson hears the count reach 3 before putting his chips in the middle.

King-Queen for Altman for TopTwo.
Richardson shows Ace-Queen and is eliminated six from the money.

Brian Altman - 875,000
