Alex Rocha

Alex Rocha raises to 1,200 in the cutoff, and Sam Taylor makes it 4,000 in the big blind.  Rocha calls.

The flop comes K♣K♠8♠. Taylor bets 4,000, and Rocha counts out his remaining chips, and calls the 4,000.

Both players check the 9♣ turn.

The river is the 7♠. This time Taylor checks, and Rocha bets 14,000, leaving himself only 4,000 behind.

Taylor goes deep into the tank, and over three minutes pass before he apologizes to the table for taking so long.  One of the players seated across from Taylor says, "Don't worry, take your time."

Taylor thinks for over another full minute before moving the chips forward to call.

"Full house," Rocha announces, as he turns over 88♣.

Taylor pauses for a few seconds before mucking his cards without showing.

Alex Rocha - 44,600
Sam Taylor - 40,000
