Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Haxton Falls, Too

• Nivå 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

We only caught up on the turn in this pot, joining in time to see Isaac Haxton flick out a blue T10,000 chip on the turn of a {10-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {J-Diamonds} {4-Spades} board. There was about 12,000 in the pot, and Joel Nordkvist thought for a moment before announcing a covering all in. Haxton sunk in his chair and lowered his head onto the rail, clearly a bit uncomfortable with the decision facing him. He broke down his stack, eyeballing his remaining ~34,000 chips with a bit of a sad look on his face, for lack of a better way to put it. Finally, he opened his hands to the ceiling and said, "All right, I call."

Showdown
Haxton: {Q-Spades} {K-Spades}
Nordkvist: {9-Spades} {10-Spades}

Haxton was on the come, but he had about as many outs as he could have hoped for. He needed to find any nine, queen, king, ace, or spade, but the river was the blank {6-Clubs}. That won't get it done, and Haxton's day has come to an end.
