Mortensen Razzes Haxton

• Nivel 2


Isaac Haxton: (X)(X) / {6-}{2-}{5-}{Q-} / (X)
Carlos Mortensen: (X)(X) / {A-}{2-Hearts}{3-}{J-} / (X)

We picked up the action on fifth street in this hand between Isaac Haxton and Carlos Mortensen. On the last break, we did overhear Haxton saying that out of all the games in this mix, he believes the Stud games to be his worst, which could play a role here seeing as this is Razz.

On fifth, Haxton was check-raised by Mortensen and made the call. On sixth, Mortensen bet and Haxton called. On seventh, Mortensen bet and Haxton called. Mortensen turned over {7-}{6-}{6-} and Haxton mucked.
