Jeffrey Hakim

Jeffrey Hakim had visible shakes in his hand after making a big river call versus Anaras Alekberovas to double up.

Around 280,000 had made it into the middle by the time the board rested as {2-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. Alekberovas was on the button and bet 300,000, enough to set Hakim in for his final 251,000.

Hakim took his time, took a breath, and made the call with {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a running two pair. It was good as his Lithuanian opponent opened {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}.
