The flop comes Diamond 10Spade 9Club 2, Salunga checks, Nguyen bets 200,000, and Salunga calls.

The turn card is the Heart 4, Salunga bets 300,000, and Nguyen calls.

The river card is the Diamond 5, Salunga bets 300,000, and Nguyen moves all in. Salunga uses his last two Time Chips to tank for a minute and a half before his hand is declared dead. Nguyen takes the pot.

Seat 1.  Ryan Salunga  –  1,300,000
Seat 3.  Ky Nguyen  –  16,100,000

Now that both players are out of Time Chips, if either of them runs out of time while facing a bet or a raise, their hand will be declared dead. If they run out of time when they are first to act or after a check, they will automatically check.
