In the hand just prior, Aleksejs Ponakovs had opened to 125,000 and Isaac Haxton defended the big blind to check-fold a {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop to a continuation bet.

Fast forward to the next hand, it folded all the way to Haxton in the small blind and he inquired about the stack size of Adrian Mateos in the big blind. As the second shortest stack, he had 570,000 behind and Haxton pulled the trigger with a shove.

Mateos then checked his cards and called on the money bubble.

Adrian Mateos: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Isaac Haxton: {10-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

The {a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop gave Mateos top pair and top kicker while Haxton then spiked the {4-Spades} on the turn for the wheel. Only a trey could save Mateos but the {8-Hearts} river let the bubble burst in cruel fashion.
