Third Time Lucky for "TheHayemaker"?

David "TheHayemaker" Haye will be looking to make it third time lucky, after seeing this second bullet come to nothing.

Haye raised to 1,600 from under the gun and "AjLDNPKR" called from the big blind.

The flop fell {4-Spades}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and "AjLDNPKR" check-called a pot-sized 3,600 bet from Haye.

After the {j-Spades} hit the turn, "AjLDNPKR" bet 13,500, enough to put Haye to the test with 8,000 behind.

Haye made the call, and tabled {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, before he saw his opponent had paired their Jack on the turn, with {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.

The {q-Spades} river only rubbed salt into the wound for Haye, as "AjLDNPKR" picked up the KO with top two pair.

But don't count out Haye just yet! Those who followed his amazing run to 40th place in last year's Goliath Main Event will remember it took the former World champ a few bullets before he got going, so watch this space.
