Waxman Takes it Easy With Queens


Matt Waxman was in the big blind when we saw the player in the cutoff raise to 525. James Calderaro called from the button and the small blind folded. Waxman put in a raise three-bet to 1,700 and the initial raiser quickly folded. Calderaro almost instantly four-bet to 3,725 and the action was back on Waxman.

Waxman looked like a statue as he was thinking about what to do. After about a minute he decided to make the call, while Calderaro was smiling at him.

The flop came down {2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Waxman checked. Calderaro fired out 6,200 and Waxman went into the tank again. Another minute passed and he opted to call.

The turn was the {9-Hearts} and after some thinking both players checked. The river was the {J-Clubs} and Waxman checked a third time. Calderaro laughed, double-checked his cards and finally knocked on the table.

Waxman turned over {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}, and took down the pot.
