Daniel Hachem has closed the gap with a couple of smaller and one big pot. The latter saw him barrel through a board and the bet of 60,000 on the river was snap-called by Mohammed Afiouni. Hachem flipped over for a pair of nines that turned into a straight draw and made a set on the river, causing Afiouni to shake his head.
"I am playing for second. I told you I gonna play face up," Afiouni joked to his opponent.
