Matt Waxman

Alex Queen opened for 135,000, then Veerab Zakarian (button) raised to 375,000. Matt Waxman (big blind) called, leaving himself only 250,000 behind. Queen called as well to see the flop fall {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}. All three players checked.

On the {10-Spades} turn, Waxman and Queen checked, then Zakarian fired 300,000. Waxman gave it some thought, then put his last 250,000 in the pot. Queen folded and the hands were tabled:

Waxman: {3-Spades}{3-Spades}
Zakarian: {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Zakarian was ahead with a pair of nines and when the {6-Hearts} completed the board, he took the pot. Waxman was eliminated in 13th place, earning $43,028.
