The Poker Stars European Poker Tour (EPT) Paris has been going on all week, and there has been a lot of action. In the most recent episode of the Podcast, which you can listen to here, we discussed a lot of it recently.

Paris €5,300 Main Event, Johan “Yoh Viral” Guilbert opened to 8,000 from middle position and Daniyar Aubakirov three-bet to 17,000 from the hijack. When the action came back around, Guilbert went deep in the tank. Three clocks, two check-raises, and one double for Guilbert. Somebody at last called clock and Guilbert called before long.

Aubakirov continued for 9,000 after Guilbert checked on the flop of “7-Hearts,” “10-Spades,” and “7-Diamonds.” Before distributing a stack of chips for a check-raise to 23,000, Guilbert stood still for more than a minute. Aubakirov made a call.

Guilbert’s eyes flitted behind his octagonal sunglasses as the turn brought the “2-Clubs,” and he sat down with his hands on his lap and considered his options. Once more, a friend at the table called the time, and Guilbert eventually checked as the seconds passed.

Aubakirov placed a wager of 20,000, and Guilbert promptly returned to the tank. Guilbert checked raised once more with a jam of 66,000 after a table mate called the clock on him for the third time. With his larger stack, Aubakirov called.

While others at the table appeared prepared to move on to the next hand, Guilbert won the pot with a pair of tens and nothing changed on the “4-Spades” river.

Poker pundits engaged in a great deal of social media discussion and outrage following the tweet. “Matt Berkey says: Hey, man. I love Yoh however this necessities to end. The elimination of such absurdity would be the one and only benefit of social media.

Darren Aronofsky: The majority of the tournaments I participate in have shot clocks, so I don’t really have to do it often. However, it’s not personal. I will call the clock if it benefits me if people waste time thinking it will benefit them. Fair game.”

Frank Kassela said: At every table I play at now, the slow play issue is completely solved. If they begin to run out of time, I speed up and continue much longer. Rather quickly, they give up.”

As of the time this article was written, Tournament Director Matt Savage polled the poker community via Twitter regarding the hand. An overwhelming 93.5 percent of respondents stated that it is destroying the game.

“Every time a sweat!” Moore stated as he scooped the pot. He would exit unexpectedly after a few levels.

After his stack had been counted and he had jumped from his seat, Moore exclaimed in shock, “So fuckin’ sick.” The Canadian was left with nothing and a bad story to tell after everything was said and done.
