Lengthy Hand Between Badziakouski and Nitsche Clearly Tilts Kabrhel

Mikita Badziakouski

Blind on blind between Dominik Nitsche    in the small blind and Mikita Badziakouski    in the big blind, Nitsche checked an     flop and Badziakouski bet 800,000.

Nitsche check-raised to 1,800,000 and Badziakouski called.

The turn was the   and both players checked.

Badziakouski now had less than a pot-sized bet behind, and the river was the  , double-pairing the board. Nitsche checked and Badziakouski tanked for over two minutes before betting 1,600,000. Nitsche eventually folded.

This hand clearly rankled with Martin Kabrhel. One player noted that each player took three minutes to act on the river, and Kabrhel unleashed a semi-tirade at Nitsche.

"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.
