Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Hachem Sets Sail

• Nivo 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

We caught up with the action on the flop as the board showed {9-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {5-Clubs}. Action was on Masa Kagawa in the small blind, and he led out with a bet of 18,500 into a pot of about that much. Ryan Young made the call in middle position, and Joe Hachem squeezed all in for just 3,100 more. The other two called the extra amount, and they checked through the {5-Hearts} turn. On the river, the {10-Diamonds} drew a bet from Young, firing out 40,000 to fold Kagawa out of the way.

Hachem was at risk, and his {8-Clubs} {8-Hearts} didn't look so good now. Indeed, Young flipped up {10-Clubs} {10-Spades} for the big boat, and it sends Hachem out to sea.

With that pot, Young has put himself atop our chip counts with a healthy 187,000 now.
