Shortly before the dinner break, with the board showing on the turn with more than 75,000 in the pot, Neil Zonenashvili moved all in from the small blind for 81,500, and his opponent in the hijack went into the tank.
While he waited, Zonenashvili let out a loud wail, with sort of an “Aaaaaaahhh” sound like you might hear at a haunted house. It attracted the attention of a floorperson, and when he wailed again, the floorperson said, “English only at the table.”
Eventually, another player at the table called for a clock, and when the 30-second countdown reached zero, the hijack’s hand was declared dead.
Zonenashvili showed for an overpair as he took the pot.
“I had queens,” said the player in the hijack.
Zonenashvili responded, “I know you had queens!”
Neil Zonenashvili – 179,500 (90 bb)

They keep showing up for the six-max tournament and we keep finding seats for them. The tournament easily tripled the $50,000 guarantee and working on quadrupling with a little effort.
We found the last two WPT Players of the Year in the field sitting at adjoining tables. Brian Altman was the reigning POY for the tour and he held that title through the lockdown until Jake Ferro came along to trade spots. Ferro was named the current POY earlier this year with a lot of help coming from his second-place finish in our WPT RRPO Championship.
