Tom Dwan - 6th Place

After PokerStars Team Online's Isaac Haxton raised to 140,000, Tom Dwan reraised all in for around 400,000. Haxton made the call, and it was off to the races for these two with Dwan at risk holding the {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Haxton had two suited over cards in the {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}.

The flop paired Haxton when the {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{7-Spades} fell. The turn was the {J-Diamonds} and improved Haxton to two pair, which meant Dwan needed an eight on the river to stay alive.

The {6-Hearts} on fifth street couldn't do it, though, and Dwan was out in sixth place for AU$500,000. Finishing in the money and earning that score netted Dwan the largest payday of his live tournament poker career. Previously, his largest live result was for $381,885.
