Hakim Hadj

In the last hand before the break, Hakim Hadj opened with a raise to 52,000 in early position. With the redraw, Arron Fletcher now had direct position on Hadj and three-bet to 145,000. Hadj moved all in for 830,000, but when Fletcher snap-called he knew he was in a world of hurt.

Hakim Hadj: {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Arron Fletcher: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}

The {J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-} flop brought more outs for Hadj, who picked up a flush draw to go with his eights. However, the turn {A-} and river {10-} were blanks, ending Hadj's run in 15th place.
