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.
