Hakim Raking Chips

Shamus • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante
Jeffrey Hakim

Jeffrey Hakim has had a nice first level on Day 3, having more than doubled his stack already. On one of the last hands of Level 15, he added a few more chips in a hand versus Rabah Ait Abdelmalek.

The hand began with Abdelmalek raising to 6,500 from the hijack seat, then Hakim made it 16,300 to go from the cutoff. It folded around, Abdelmalek called right away, and the flop came {2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. Abdelmalek checked, and when Hakim bet 15,000 Abdelmalek was again very quick with the call.

Both checked the {3-Clubs} turn, then the river brought the {K-Hearts} and another check from Abdelmalek. This time Hakim bet 28,000, and after a brief, exasperated-seeming moment Abdelmalek made the call. Hakim showed {K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for a rivered pair of kings, and Abdelmalek mucked.
