Event #58: $1,500 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Huge Call Takes Out Waxman

• Taso 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Ferdinando Locascio

Action folded to Ferdinando Locascio in the small blind and he raised to 3,700. Matt Waxman reraised to 6,200 from the big blind and Locascio made the call. The flop was {8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Locascio checked. Waxman bet 6,800 and Locascio called.

The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and Locascio check-called a bet of 13,600 from Waxman. The river was the {2-Diamonds} and Locascio checked once again. Waxman thought for a moment and then moved all in for 30,800. Locascio tanked for a couple of minutes and eventually threw out a chip for the call. "Nice hand," Waxman declared as the dealer asked for both hands to be tabled.

Waxman: {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

Locascio: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Locascio had missed his flush draw, but his hero call with ace high was good for a huge pot and Waxman's elimination.
