Chip Lead Change! Haxton Doubles Through Luca

Isaac Haxton

Ivan Luca had held the chip lead ever since the tournament got down to the final two tables, but just now he had to give it up to Isaac Haxton.

Haxton moved all in from the button for 1,130,000 and Luca tanked for quite some time before re-shoving from the small blind, getting Steve O'Dwyer to fold.

Haxton: {J-Spades}{8-Spades}
Luca: {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

"That's not a good hand to be up against," Haxton said.

The flop brought out {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, and Haxton said, "But that's a good flop.

On the turn the {Q-Diamonds} hit, and the river was the {9-Clubs} filling up Haxton's straight to create a huge shift in this event. There are still four players remaining but right now it's really anyone's game.

Isaac Haxton us 2,380,000 780,000
