Ivo Donev elimination

No-Limit Hold'em

Elior Sion raised to 215,000 on the button, and Isaac Haxton called in the small blind. Ivo Donev made it 1,650,000 in the big blind, pushing in all of his T25,000 chips and leaving himself just a couple of towers of T5,000 chips behind. Sion folded quickly, but Haxton took longer.

Haxton drooped his head toward his chips, deep in thought for about a minute, and then slid forward a tower of T100,000 chips with an all-in announcement.

Donev shot out of his chair and snap-called, tabling {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}.

"That's not good for me," Haxton said, turning over {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}.

Neither was the {10-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Clubs} flop or the {q-Spades} turn. However, the {5-Diamonds} fell on the river, much to the delight of at least one railbird rooting hard for Haxton. Donev calmly shook hands with his opponents.
