Matthew Waxman

Francesco Barbaro opened to 100,000 on the button and Matt Waxman made it 150,000 in the big blind. Call.

The flop came down {8-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Waxman bet 50,000 before Barbaro raised, Waxman made the call. The {Q-Spades} turn saw Waxman check-call a bet of 100,000 to see the {K-Clubs} river.

Waxman checked once more and Barbaro put out 100,000 to cover Waxman's remaining chips.

"One in a bazillion?" sighed Waxman. Finally he called only for Barbaro to turn over {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for the nut straight. Waxman's hand of {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{2-Spades}{10-Hearts} went into the muck and Barbaro goes into heads up with a huge chip lead.
