Matt Waxman was poised to make another deep run but might come up short thanks to a bad river. He had Eric Becks all-in and dominated with AsAd against QsQc in a hand that would push him over 170,000 if it held.

The Kh9d6c flop was harmless and the 3h turn left Becks with just two outs to stay alive. Waxman shrugged and Becks threw his hands in the air when the Qd spiked on the river. Becks moved up to 130,000 while Waxman was under 50,000.
