Garcia Dishes Runner-Runner Beat on Haxton

Cord Garcia

From the cutoff, Cord Garcia raised to 21,000 before Isaac Haxton three-bet the big blind to 81,000.

Garcia called, and after the dealer spread a {7-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} flop, Haxton continued for 75,000.

Forced to use a time extension chip, Garcia eventually announced he was all in for 293,000. Haxton re-checked his hole cards, then announced a call.

Garcia: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
Haxton: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Garcia was in bad shape holding top pair against Haxton's middle set.

Needing some combination of flush or straight cards, or runner full house outs, Garcia would see the {Q-Spades} and {7-Spades} roll off on the turn and river to improve his top pair to a full house.

As Garcia doubled into contention with the chip leaders, Haxton was left with a cruel runner-runner beat to drop down to around 21 big blinds.
