Matt Waxman

On a board reading {A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} Matt Waxman lead out with a bet of 41,000 chips, a bet that Powell had to think about. He rubbed his nose with the index finger of his right hand and sat motionless for at least a minute before making the call.

The {9-Clubs} on the river completed the community cards, Waxman checked and Powell checked behind.

"I have a nine," informed Waxman, but he did not show it as Powell turned over {A-Spades}{2-Spades} for trip aces. Waxman now has less than 200,000 chips.
