Hachem Doubles Again


On the turn of a {4-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {7-Spades} {9-Clubs} board, Joe Hachem bet 30,000 into a pot of close to 100,000, and Dan Smith made a big raise behind him. Hachem ended up all in for 143,000, and he was ahead as the cards were shown down:

Hachem: {10-Spades} {8-Spades}
Smith: {K-Clubs} {8-Hearts}

Hachem's top pair had him as the favorite to double, but he needed to fade the kings and clubs left in the deck in order to avoid being shown the door.

River: {9-Hearts}

That's safe, and two pair give Hachem another double. It moves him all the way back up to 375,000, and he appears to have pipped back ahead of Smith with that pot.

Don't call it a comeback!
