Duane Alexander opened for 27,000 under the gun and Michael De Gillio called in middle position. Matthew Livingston then three-bet to 85,000 in the cutoff and Alexander moved all in. Livingston snap-called and the players showed their hands.
Alexander was dominated and it stayed that way through the flop. The on the turn however provided Alexander with a spade flush draw and now the ESPN camera crew was called over to capture the final card. Claudia Crawford who was sitting next Alexander and screamed when the spade hit the turn then said, “If it ain’t a sweat, it’s not the main event” before the river came...the and Alexander hit his flush to eliminate Livingston. After the hand, Alexander said, “Cuz I got a black man dealing, black spades”, as he raked in the chips.
