Global Poker Masters Nature Calls for Ike

During the last hand, Team USA's Isaac Haxton had to talk to a man about a horse.

During the last hand of the Global Poker Masters for Team USA, Dan Smith was looking for advice on a key hand, but teammate Ike Haxton was nowhere to be found.

It turns out that the Team PokerStars Pro had slipped away to relieve himself and became ineligible to participate in the decision making for that hand.

Dan Smith was facing a 4-bet with 77 and eventually decided to shove—a move Ike agreed with. Unfortunately for King Dan, his opponent had pocket rockets and the board ran out. Team USA had started the day in first place, but it was Team Italy that ended the day as the victors.

You can check out his recap of the situation here in his interview with PokerNews.
