Waxman's Got a Stack

Happy_Freaked • Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Matt Waxman

On a board showing {K-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{K-Hearts}, with quite a lot of chips already in the pot, it was Matt Waxman who moved all in.

The dealer tossed the all-in button towards Waxman, signalling his move, and John Hennigan, his lone opponent on the button, called rather quickly.

"Full house," Waxman announced as he turned over {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and Hennigan shook his head as he mucked his cards.

When the dealer started counting out Waxman's stack, for a total of 76,400, Hennigan said, "I thought he bet 50k?"

"No, he moved all in," the dealer said and Hennigan shook his head once more, as he had to pay an extra 26,400 on top of the chips that Waxman had slid forward.

Waxman now sits on a very comfortable stack while Hennigan's lost a lot this level.
