Watson Destroys Table 29, Lunkin and Hachem Bust

Mike Watson

Mike Watson just went on a back-to-back semi heater as he busted Joe Hachem and Vitaly Lunkin. In the first hand Vitaly Lunkin pushed all-in under the gun for his last 6,000 chips. Watson made the call and the other players folded.

The board ran out {5-Spades}{6-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{J-Spades} giving Watson a pair of aces and the knock out. On the very next hand Watson was in the big blind and Hachem raised under the gun to 2,000. The action got folded around to 'SirWatts' who made the call.

The flop {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and Watson checked to Hachem who bet 2,700. Watson took his time before smoothly throwing out a raise to 7,200. Hachem tanked for a bit and than put a three-bet to 18,000. Watson stayed calm as he took another 30 seconds before going all-in. Hachem made the call.

The turn was the {A-Hearts} and the river the {7-Diamonds} and Watson's straight held up. "I knew you had jack-ten, but I wasn't going to fold" Hachem sighed as stood up from the table. Watson had Hachem covered by 8,000 chips and managed to get two knock outs in two hands.
