Magen Saved On The River
Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Mikko Sundell raises to 44,000 on the button, Matthew Waxman flat calls in the small blind but Fred Magen squeezes to 135,000 in the big blind. Sundell gets out of the way but Waxman looks as if he is serious about his hand.
"What did you start the hand with?" he asks
The answer is around 600,000. As soon as he hears this he rechecks his cards and moves all in, Magen snap-calls and we could be down to our six-handed final table.
The flop reads 4J7 keeping Waxman in the lead but giving Magen some hope. The turn is the 8, which changes nothing at all. The dealer burns and puts the J on the river! Boom! Magen hits trip jacks and doubles to around 1,400,000!
"Nice call," says Waxman sarcastically.
