Donev Pays Haxton

mnuwwarah • Level 24: 150,000-300,000, 0 ante

Limit Hold'em

Ivo Donev raised under the gun and got action from big blind Isaac Haxton.

Haxton check-called a bet on the {3-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop, and both checked the {9-Clubs} turn. Haxton bet the {4-Clubs} river, and Donev called.

Haxton turned over {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for a jack-high flush and left Donev shaking his head.

Pot-Limit Omaha

Isaac Haxton raised to 280,000 from the cutoff, Ivo Donev called from the button, and Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind.

The flop came down {8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}, and Negreanu bet the pot for 880,000. Haxton folded, Donev raised, and Negreanu called all in for about 1,650,000.

Donev: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Negreanu: {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Negreanu wasn't in great shape, as Donev had the better club outs, but Negreanu did have an inside straight draw. However, the {2-Clubs} turn locked up hand for Donev with the better flush, rendering the {6-Diamonds} river moot.

Becker Takes from Sion

zedmaster84 • Level 24: 150,000-300,000, 0 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

From the cutoff, Johannes Becker raised to 280,000, and Elior Sion, in the small blind, asked for his stack. "Around 3.95 million," Becker replied, and Sion called.

The flop fell {Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Sion checked, as did Becker. After the {9-Diamonds} turn, Sion checked and called a bet of 320,000 from Becker before checking again the {4-Hearts} on the river. Becker made it 960,000 to go, and Sion reluctantly called.

Becker announced a straight and rolled over {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} as the winning hand.

Razz

Isaac Haxton completed with a {4-}, and Ivo Donev raised with an {a-} one off the bring-in. Haxton called and then check-called with the better board when both players caught low on fourth street. When Donev caught paint on fifth, Haxton began betting.

Haxton: {x-}{x-}/{4-}{2-}{3-}{4-}
Donev: {x-}{x-}/{a-}{7-}{j-}{a-}

Both players paired on sixth, and Donev checked. Haxton bet again and got called. Donev asked who was first on seventh.

"You were first last street, you think anything's changed?" Daniel Negreanu answered with a laugh.

Donev check-called another bet, standing up as he did so.

"King," Haxton said, showing {k-}{a-}{2-}.

"I knew he start with a king," Donev declared.

"You knew he started with a king?" Negreanu said with an incredulous chuckle. "Good read."

"That's impressive," Haxton said. "Maybe someone's looking over my shoulder."
