At ten minutes before the end of the level, all players were instructed to play four more hands.
Most finished in a timely manner. However, over on table four, Jason DeWitt was in the tank. The board read A♠7♥2♥5♠T♥ and the player in seat one had bet 9,650. Jason thought for about 10 minutes. All the other players were done bagging and tagging and had left the room.
Jason continued to think, then finally called. His opponent showed A♥9♥ for the nut flush and the nutz to take the pot. (Jason mucked.) Then the last two players got to bag their chips.
