Isaac Haxton raised to 700 on the button and got a call from Sean Winter in the small blind before Lauri Varonen made it 2,800 to go in the big. Both Haxton and Winter called, and flopped. Action checked to Haxton and he bet 5,800. Both of his opponents called. On the turn, two checks in front of Haxton led him to drop in 25,000. Both Winter and Varonen folded, and Haxton took the first big pot.
