Clemencon Calls Clock on Himself

"Clock on Table 363," we heard a dealer yell and made our way over. Upon our arrival we discovered Tristan Clemencon with about 11,000 out in front of him on a board reading {Q-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Bulent Karsli had an even bigger bet out in front of him, putting Clemencon to the ultimate test.

Clemencon had about 17,000 behind, and to call would cost him it all. He must have thought for awhile because he opted to call the clock on himself. The floor arrived and gave Clemencon thirty second to act as opposed to the standard minute because, as the floor said, "He called it on himself. He obviously wanted to finish the hand."

The floor then gave the ten-second countdown and by the time he got to one, Clemencon had not acted; as such, his hand was dead. Clemencon showed {K-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{x-} and wanted Karsli to show, but the latter mucked and simply said, "I had the {a-Clubs}."
