Mike Sexton is one of many players who believes live poker should have a basketball-type shot clock, and if it ever one was put in place Gianluca Mattia would certainly fall foul of it.
Bastien Lebel opened the betting with a raise, Mattia three-bet to 1,900 and then called (after 90 seconds) when Lebel four-bet to 5,600. The duo saw the flop come down and Lebel made a continuation bet of 5,500. Mattia tanked for close to two minutes before making the call.
The on the turn saw Lebel bet again, increasing his bet size to 7,500and once again Mattia tank-called. The river was another eight and Lebel bet 10,000 leaving himself just 20,000 behind. Mattia went deep into the tank for four minutes before Kyle Cheong called time on him. The tournament director got all the way down to 10 seconds, from 60, before Mattia mucked his hand.
