$100,000 Challenge

Pass the Sugar

From under the gun, Joe Hachem raised to 25,000. The only caller was Mikhail Smirnov out of the big blind. From there, the flop came down {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Smirnov checked. Hachem bet 30,000 and Smirnov check-raised all in to put Hachem to the test. Hachem quickly called all in for 61,000 total.

Hachem: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}
Smirnov: {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}

The turn was the {9-Spades} and river the {5-Diamonds}. Both of those kept Hachem in front and he doubled up.
