Kitai KOs Hachem

Joe Hachem - Eliminated

The 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event champion has fallen. Davidi Kitai opened with a raise under the gun to an unknown amount and it folded around to Joe Hachem who bumped it up to 12,000 from the button. Action came back to Kitai and he announced a four-bet to 41,000. Hachem announced an all in and Kitai called, though it was actually Hachem who was at risk.

"I hope you have ace-king," remarked Hachem before the cards were turned up.

Kitai did not have ace-king, but rather {K-Clubs}{K-Spades} which was crushing Hachem's {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}.

The flop came down {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and Hachem picked up outs to make a diamond flush to take control of the hand. Unfortunately for the Main Event champion, it was not meant to be as the {8-Spades} hit the turn and the {J-Hearts} the river, ensuring that he would be eliminated from play. Kitai scooped up the pot and is now sitting on about 98,000.

On the other side of the room, Matt O'Donnell was eliminated from play in unknown action.
