This was one of the longest hands we've seen in a while, clocking in at more than 17 minutes -- and it has a rather surprising ending.
Daniel Buzgon raises from the button to 1,300, Vanessa Rousso reraises from the big blind to 3,800, and Buzgon calls.
The flop comes Q109, Rousso bets 5,500, and Buzgon calls. The turn card is the A, Rousso checks, Buzgon bets 9,750, and Rousso check-raises to 25,000. Buzgon tanks for a while before he calls.
The river card pairs the board with the 10, and Rousso tanks for a while before she bets 70,000 -- just enough to put Buzgon all in (he has about 68,000). Buzgon clenches his fists in apparent frustration, and goes into the tank for a very long time.
After a couple minutes, Buzgon says, "This sucks so much." After another minute or two, he apologizes to the table for taking so long, but nobody looks ready to call for a clock.
After more than five minutes, Buzgon calls all in and shows A10 -- a full house, tens full of aces. It's the fifth nuts, only behind two straight flushes (KJ and J8), and two higher full houses (A-A and Q-Q). One of the players says it's the longest tank he's ever seen with such a strong hand.
Rousso appears to be stunned, and mucks her hand. Buzgon wins the pot.
Buzgon offers an apology, saying, "It's either a slowroll, or I'm out." Rousso laughs nervously as she counts her remaining chips -- 22,000.
Daniel Buzgon - 205,000
Vanessa Rousso - 22,000
