$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed

Middleton Crushing; Hachem Out


Tom Middleton has gone on a rampage that has seen him take down several huge pots to now sit as the chip leader of this tournament. The latest casualty to fall to Middleton's wrath was none other than Joe Hachem.

Middleton had been rumbling with Hachem for several orbits and it seems Hachem had enough. The hand started when Hachem opened the pot to 8,000. Middleton then three-bet to 22,000 and this is when Hachem shoved his stack all in. Middlton snapped Hachem off and tabled his {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} to be dominating the {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} of Hachem.

When the board ran out {3-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}, Middleton took down the hand and sent the 2005 WSOP Main Event champion to the rail. Hachem officially exits the building in 27th place.
