Shak's a Sicko

Dan Shak and Chris Hunichen were heads up with the board reading {k-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Shak check-called a 8,500-chip bet from Hunichen, and both players checked after the {a-Diamonds} turned. The {q-Diamonds} completed the board, and Shak checked a third time. Hunichen tossed out 10,000, and Shak quickly called.

Hunichen tabled {7-Spades}{6-Spades}, and Shak paused before opening up his hand.

"Is that a seven?" he said, squinting at the board.

Hunichen nodded, and Shak tabled {k-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a pair of kings. He won the pot, and is now flirting with 300,000 chips.

Chip stacks
Dan Shak us 290,000 30,000
Chris Hunichen us 170,000 -106,100
