Andy Black was all in for his final 8,650 in a preflop pot that had already reached 2,500. Although we're not sure exactly what happened, Black's opponent inferred that he had pocket queens. Since talking about your hand against the rules a floor person was called over, not to issue a warning or penalty, but to clarify to rule. Black had no intention of having his table mate get reprimanded for his actions, but he did want the rule to be understood by everyone.
While the floor was explaining what was illegal and what was not, Black decided to use this opportunity to call the clock. A timer was placed in front of the opponent which drew more chatter from the table about how only the player with a decision could see how much time was left. With just a few seconds on the clock the opponent threw in the chips the hands were turned face up.
The flop nearly sealed Black's fate as it fell leaving him just four outs minus redraws. The turn was the and river and Black is one of the first to hit the rails.
