Timothy Banks limps in from the small blind for 30,000 before Chad Eveslage raises to 100,000 from the big blind.

Banks calls, and when the flop lands Spade 4Spade 5Diamond 10, he checks. Eveslage bets 80,000, and Banks check-raises to 600,000.

Eveslage uses his final time extension chip, and then cuts out a three-bet amounting to 1,200,000.

Banks immediately calls, and when the turn lands the Club 5, he announces a bet of 2,000,000.

Eveslage responds by shoving all in for 3,725,000 and Banks now enters the think-tank. Banks stands up to look at both the pot and the clock as his masseuse takes a break.

Once Eveslage’s count is confirmed by the dealer, Banks proceeds to use three of his time extension chips before flinging his cards to the muck and returning to his chair massage.
