Isaac Haxton

From early position, Isaac Haxton raised to 20,000. [Removed:163] reraised to 60,000 from the hijack position, then action folded back around the table to Haxton. After about 30 seconds, Haxton announced that he was all in.

"All right, I call," was the response from Sheikh as he looked at his stack just to double check things. He held the {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}.

When Haxton saw Sheikh turn up the pocket tens, he wasn't impressed. With a shake of his head, Haxton tabled the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs} to keep Sheikh's tens in front and give him the double up. He was all in for 264,000 and moved to over 550,000. Haxton slipped back to just about 12 big blinds (127,000).
