Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Laliberté Eliminated by Haxton

• Taso 11: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Guy Laliberté - Eliminated

Action folded around to Guy Laliberté on the button and he pushed out a raise to 140,000. Phil Galfond called from the small blind and action fell upon Isaac Haxton in the big blind. Haxton thought for about 30 seconds before dropping out a three-bet to 515,000. Without any hesitation, Laliberté instantly moved his stack all in for his last roughly 1.185 million. Galfond got out of the way and Haxton called.

Haxton: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}
Laliberté: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The dealer produced a {3-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} flop, pairing Haxton's ten but keeping Laliberté's queens in the lead.

"That's a pretty good flop for me," said Haxton. "Let's see the five of spades."

Rather than the turn giving him a sweat, it gave him the lead with the {10-Clubs} for trip tens. Laliberté winced at the sight of Haxton's third ten and called for a queen on the river. Alas, it was the {4-Spades}, giving Haxton a winning full house to eliminate Laliberté from play.

With this victory, Haxton is now up to 4.76 million in chips.
