"If I was in the hand in that spot on the turn," said Kabrhel to Nitsche, "Then you call clock on me 100%. I'm just saying, it's kind of ridiculous [...] You can enjoy all the time you want but that was ridiculous."
There was a pause before he continued.
"Don't call time on me when I have an all-in decision. I'm just saying that you'd call clock on me in the same situation. It's crazy. I don't have a problem with that hand in paricular, I just have problem with other hands when they call the time on me."
"I didn't think we took that long," Nitsche said to Badziakouski.
"It was long but like…just put a shot clock in the tournament," said Badziakouski in reply.
