Hachem Kills Lunkin's Kings

Vitaly Lunkin raised to 1,500 under the gun and got called by three players. The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and after Billy Jordanou checked from the big blind, Lunkin bet 3,500. After Mike Watson folded Hachem called and Jordanou also let go of his hand.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Lunkin now checked to Hachem who bet 4,500. Lunkin tanked for a while before calling and they went heads up to the river. The river was the {9-Spades} and Lunkin checked again. Hachem grabbed for chips and threw in 9,500. Lunkin counted his stack multiple times but couldn't find a fold. Hachem showed {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a straight and Lunkin mucked his {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} face up.
