Haxton Busts Phua, Christner Gets O'Dwyer

Level 9 : 600/1,200, 200 ante

There have been two quick casualties in a short space of time and the last three hands were announced almost immediately afterward.

It was Paul Phua who was the first bustout, with Haxton bidding him farewell until Day 2, where he is expected to re-enter. It started with a button raise to 2,500 from Orpen Kisacikoglu, with Phua making the call from the small blind before Haxton re-popped it to 10,000 from the big blind.

While Kisacikoglu was a believer Phua evidently was not and pulled the trigger for 40,000, eliciting an immediate call from Haxton. We are not sure what hand Phua had as we only arrived in the aftermath when Phua's stack was being appropriated by Haxton, but we do know that Haxton had pocket queens and had flopped top set, which was enough to send Phua out.

Steve O'Dwyer busted while this was going on, departing at the hands of Christian Christner who stacked up to 190,000 while O'Dwyer headed for the rail, at least for this evening, though with re-entry open until the start of level 12 on Monday, 14 May this may not be the last we see of O'Dwyer in this tournament.
