Daniel Hachem Eliminated in 2nd Place ($24,220)

Daniel Hachem

Daniel Hachem doubled up his short stack once in Pot-Limit Omaha with {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} versus {K-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} before picking up pocket aces in Hold'em. Unfortunately, the dealer gave Mohammed Afiouni by mistake a third card and the hand counted as misdeal!

Then, Hachem got his last 90,000 in preflop with deuces and flipped for his miracle:

Hachem: {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}
Afiouni: {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Hachem was sent to the rail in second place. Both contenders for the title shook hands and the Hachem rail welcomed their son with plenty of consolations, the payday of A$24,220 will surely sooth the pain as well.
