Ivey Nearly Doubles Again

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 10,000 ante

Phil Ivey limped and then called a raise of 240,000 from Haxton. When the flop came down {j-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, Haxton bet 480,000, Ivey called, and the {4-Spades} turned. Haxton checked, Ivey bet 700,000, and Haxton check-raised all in. Ivey snap-called off and the cards were turned up.

Ivey: {7-Spades}{6-Spades}
Haxton: {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Haxton held a double gutshot straight draw, but Ivey already held the straight. Ivey was primed for another double, but then the dealer put out the {6-Hearts} on the river. Haxton made the same eight-high straight and they chopped the pot.

Mike McDonald - 3rd Place

Mike McDonald moved all in from the small blind, and Isaac Haxton called from the big blind. McDonald was the player at risk with the {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, and Haxton had the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. The flop, turn, and river ran out {6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, and McDonald fell in third place.

McDonald took home AU$1,900,000 for his finish and was able to profit AU$1,150,000 after firing three bullets similar to Daniel Negreanu for a total of AU$750,000 in buy-ins to this event. What's more is that McDonald finished runner-up in the $100,000 Challenge just a couple days ago for AU$1,500,000 to put his total take at AU$3,400,000.
