Isaac Haxton has just lost a very large pot and we were there to catch all the action. It started with Haxton opening the pot to 3,000 from under the gun. Marcia Topp was in the seat directly on Haxton's left and quickly three-bet to 6,000. A flurry of cards hit the muck from all directions of the table and it was back on Haxton and he called.
On the flop, Haxton check-called a bet of 7,900 and then check-called a bet of 15,000 on the turn. Then the dealer flipped over a river and the action started heating up.
Haxton again checked here, but then went deep into the tank when Topp bet 25,000. The ESPN cameras came and focused on Haxton as almost two minutes passed. Eventually Haxton said, "Alright, time to look stupid on TV," flicking out the call as he did so.
At showdown, Topp tabled , for a rivered flush - enough to scoop up the large pot and leave a big dent in Haxton's stack.
"Well, at least i won't be wondering," said Haxton as he played with his chips. There is always a silver lining.
