Here Comes Galen!


Galen Hall raised to 40,000 from the cutoff seat, and he found action in two places as both Isaac Haxton (button) and Viktor Blom (big blind) put in the calls to see a flop.

It came {9-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {3-Diamonds}, and Blom knocked the table. Hall continued out with 55,000 chips, Haxton called, and Blom ducked out of the way to let the other two go at it. They'd check through the {J-Hearts} turn, but Hall led out again on the river with a big bet of 262,000. Haxton made the call, but we'd never get to see his cards.

Hall showed {8-Hearts} {5-Hearts} for the flush, and Haxton's muck knocked him down to his lowest point in quite a while — about 695,000. The defending PCA Main Event champ, though, is now in the mix of chip leaders with 1.16 million. There or thereabouts.
