Hakim Helps Himself to Staszko's Stack

YorkshirePud • Level 3: 100-200, 0 ante

Former World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up, Martin Staszko, has been eliminated from the EPT Deauville main event at the hands of Jeffrey Hakim.

Hakim opened the preflop betting round with a min-raise to 400, two players folded and Staszko three-bet all-in for 3,400 in total. The action passed back to Hakim, he checked his cards once more and announced, "I call."

Hakim: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Staszko: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

The {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop was no help at all the Staszko and the {7-Hearts} turn was even worse as it improved Hakim to an unbeatable — in this hand at least — full house. The meaningless {J-Hearts} completed the board and confirmed Staszko's exit.

Hakim is flying high on 58,000 chips.
