After nearly four full minutes Hou calls for a clock.  The floor approaches and Hou says he called the clock on himself and the floor says, "Oh, ok. You have a minute to act or your hand will be declared dead."

The floor starts counting down the last ten seconds and Hou announces a call, turning over AA♣.

Lind is visibly shocked as he turns over K♠Q for a pair of kings.  The 8♠ river does not change the hand and Hou is awarded a huge double up.

"I'm sorry," Hou says very genuinely, "It was a very difficult call for me."

Allen Kessler was recently left short after shoving all in with AK and running into aces.  
Frank Servidio raises to 5,000 in the cutoff and Allen Kessler moves his remaining 1,800 in chips into the middle from the small blind.  Ryan Mostafa calls in the big blind.  

"I check dark," Mostafa says right before the 986♠ flop is dealt. Servidio checks as well.

The two players also both check the 5♠ turn.  

The river is the 10♣. Mostafa grabs chips and moves them forward to bet, and Servidio quickly folds.  

Mostafa turns over 105♣ and Kessler says, "I had you crushed," as he turns over A9♣.  

Kessler then turns to Servidio and says, "All you had to do was bet the flop."  

Servidio responds, "But I didn't have you beat."  

Another player at the table chimed in, "He probably wasn't going anywhere with the straight draw."
