The fell on the river and Taylor checked. Sharaskin took a few moments to think and bet 235,000, which sent Taylor into the tank.
Taylor tanked for several minutes and another player at the table began to talk of calling the clock, but the clock was never actually called. After nearly five minutes, Taylor called.
Sharaskin tabled for fours full of queens, which was good enough to win the pot. Taylor mucked and Sharaskin took the pot to put him over the 1,000,000-chip mark for the first time in this tournament and give him a commanding chip lead.
