Stud

Elior Sion completed with the {j-Diamonds}, and Isaac Haxton raised with the {7-Spades}. Sion called, then check-called fourth street. He bet out on fifth when each player caught a king. Haxton called, then put the remainder of his chips in on sixth after catching an ace.

Sion: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}/{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Haxton: {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}/{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

Haxton had the lead going to the final card with sevens plus blockers to a couple of Sion's outs. Sion squeezed out his card and said it was 50-50 whether Haxton would need to improve. He turned over the {9-Diamonds}, making nines up and putting the pressure on Haxton to find another pair or a seven.

Haxton peeked down at the {10-Diamonds} and shook everyone's hand.

The two finalists stepped away from the table for a short, unscheduled break.
