I think I get your meaning.
Some reasons people run out their clocks:
- They've been disconnected
- They multi-tabling (playing on more than one table) and it takes them a long time to get back to your table
- You're on the bubble (the hand before players will get paid) and they have a small stack and they're hoping that by waiting longer someone else will go out putting them into the money
- They're doing something else and simply didn't notice that it was their hand (e.g., I often read a book or watch a movie while playing)
There are a few reasons why some hands seem to take forever to play.
Hope that helps a bit.
