Spinning And Winning

In the longest hand I've seen so far, Marc Podell (New York City, NY) raises 425 and opponent re-raises to 1200. Marc smooth calls and the two of them see a flop of 4♣ A 8

Marc checks and opponent bets 500.

Marc spins a spherical top-like card protector and thinks and thinks. Finally he re-raises.

Now Marc's opponent goes into the tank for several long minutes and he re-raises.

This time Marc immediately re-raises an additional 13,500 causing his opponent to insta-fold.

We never see their hole cards, the turn or the river.

At this stage of the tournament players are taking their time to make the correct decisions so they don't bust out early.
