Galen Hall is starting to get a bit frustrated, and it's not hard to see why. For nearly the entire tournament, he's had chip leader Isaac Haxton on his direct left, and Haxton has been doing his part to make life miserable for the 2011 PCA Main Event champion.
Two hands ago, Hall raised to 21,000 on the button, and Haxton three-bet to 66,000 next door in the small blind. Hall tried again with a four-bet to 125,000 straight, but Haxton shoved all in back over the top. Hall could not have folded any quicker, and the frustration was growing.
On the next hand, Hall raised again, and this time he spoke right up: "Just call blind." Haxton went ahead and folded with wry smirk, and Hall was allowed to win that small pot.
