Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Waxman Falls in Last Level of the Night

• Taso 10: 400-800, 100 ante
Matt Waxman in earlier WSOP action.

Action folded to Matt Waxman on the button and he moved all in for 12,500. Jeff Madsen took a long time before calling from the small blind, which put action on the player in the big.

"This should be a fun squeeze," he said before looking at his cards. He squeezed them alright, and he liked what he saw as he called off for 12,000 total.

Waxman: {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Madsen: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Big Blind: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

"That's why I don't call," Madsen said. The {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop was safe for the big blind, and so was the {6-Clubs} turn. The {K-Diamonds} river allowed the big blind to wake down the main pot, there was 1,000 in the side that went to Waxman, who saw his ace come into play after Madsen was counterfeited.

Unfortunately for Waxman, there would be no "a chip and a chair" story for him as he fell in the very next hand.
