Queens Help Hakim

Shamus • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

A big hand just developed between Jeffrey Hakim (under the gun) and Noel Gaens (cutoff), with the pair reaching a {6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop having built a pot of close to 100,000.

Hakim led for 58,000, and when Gaens raised to 124,000, Hakim responded with an all-in shove for around 250,000. Gaens thought a beat, then called, turning over {J-Spades}{10-Spades} for top pair of tens. Hakim had the best hand, however, with {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, and after the {8-Clubs} turn and {8-Diamonds} river, Hakim had scored the double-up.
