We joined the action on the far end of the room where Thomas Eychene was in the cutoff and had 13,000 chips over the betting line and he was in the tank. Jackson Genovesi had raised a massive 56,900, effectively putting Eychene all in.
"King-jack?" asked Eychene.
"I cannot talk about my hand," came the reply, "but I think I have a better hand than you."
One minute later Eychene asked , "Will you show me if I fold?"
"No. Too much information to the table," replied Genovesi, "if it was just you and me then I would but trust me I have the best hand. I'm 85% sure."
Eventually one of the inactive players called time an as Christian Scalszi, the tournament director, got down to 30 seconds on his 60 second clock, Eychene folded.
"Seven-nine!" joked Genovesi, and his table mates all burst into laughter.
