Ivey continued to riffle chips in his right hand as his trademark open-mouth blank stare followed.

Several minutes went by, and Ivey removed his headphones and continued looking at Slobodskoy who had remained motionless the entire time since he slid out the raise.
Ivey continued to search for an answer, and with a multitude of camera crews now surrounding his table, Ivey slowly pushed his cards to the muck.
Slobodskoy reached forward to pull back his 200,000 raise, and Ivey tapped the table and acknowledged Slobodskoy as the pot was pushed to Slobodskoy, and the players at the table returned to normal play as the surrounding media vacated the area.
