After a flop of AhAcQd, Yoann Gimenez checked from UTG+1, Andrew Pecina bet 800,000 from the cutoff, and Gimenez called.

The turn card was the 7c, Gimenez checked, Pecina bet 1,375,000, and Gimenez tanked for a long time before he called.

The river card was the Jc, Gimenez checked, and Pecina bet about 3,300,000. Gimenez went into the tank for a very long time.

After a couple of minutes, Gimenez apologized to the table, saying, “Sorry guys, it’s a tough situation.” He then pointed out that he wasn’t Hollywooding, because there was no livestream or anything like that.

Eventually, Gimenez folded, and Pecina took the pot.

Andrew Pecina  –  17,700,000  (44 bb)
Yoann Gimenez  –  15,550,000  (39 bb)
