Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Deliver the Glucose!

We've already spotted Australian Team PokerStars Pro Tony Hachem in the field, so it was only natural that his big brother and 2005 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Hachem was also going to be around here somewhere.

And find him we did - naturally, he's in the "True Blue" section (which also features fellow Australian players Kristian Lunardi, Rayan Nathan and Shane Shalders) on table 280 and we just witnessed a huge hand there which saw him chip up to almost 50,000.

From the UTG +1 position, Hachem raised to 450 and the action folded to another player in middle position who re-raised to 1,400. The big blind called and Hachem leaned over the dealer and asked the middle position player how much he had left. The middle position player laid his chips out, revealing that he had about 12,200 behind.

Hachem elected to call, then all three players checked the flop of {7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} before Hachem led out for 2,725 after the big blind checked to him on the turn of the {2-Clubs}. The middle position player called and the big blind folded, then Hachem pushed out 25,000 on the river, which was a repeat {2-Hearts}.

The middle position player quickly called all-in, but stormed out in a fury after Hachem rolled up {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for the full house. That's a whole lot of sugar to be passed right there - BAM!
