The big stack over at Isaac Haxton's table had raised to 500 from middle position with Haxton following up with a three-bet to 1,500 in the cutoff. When action folded around to the original raiser he made the call.
The flop came with Haxton's opponent checking. When Haxton fired in a bet of 1,500, his opponent tossed his cards away to end the hand.

PokerStars Team Pro Brazil member Maria "Maridu" Mayrinck is sporting some new bling today, but it's not hers.
Her current significant other, David "Bakes" Bakes, is letting her borrow his new WSOP bracelet for the day. Maybe it will bring her luck, maybe it will not. Maridu was kind enough and let one of our tournament reporters look at it as well.
"It's the closest you'll ever get to one," she joked.
PokerStars Team Online Pro George Lind just sat next to Maridu at Table 76. Lind has already cashed at this World Series finishing 10th in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 Championships for $43,833.
