Kitai went deep into the tank, alternately staring at the board and then at MInieri, who never wavered his gaze from Kitai. After about three minutes, Minieri patted the table and said "time." About 10 seconds later, Kitai slid out a tower of pink chips to call.

Kitai turned over and dragged the massive pot with third pair.
