River Saves Hakim?

[user76023] • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

With the board reading {9-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{Q-Spades}, Noel Gaens checked and Jeffrey Hakim bet 189,000. Remi Castaignon flat-called and so did Gaens, suddenly this pot was looking huge.

The {A-Clubs} on the river looked like it would mean more action but instead it was checked around. Gaens showed {K-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a missed flush draw, Hakim's {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs} had been counterfeited on the river but he could probably breathe a sigh of relief as Castaignon showed {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the turned straight and scooped the pot.
