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.
