We weren't there for the action, but when we recently walked by Tony Hachem's table we noticed he had a lot of chips in front of him all of a sudden. We asked the table what occurred and this is what we were told.
A player in early position preflop bet out, and received two callers. Action then made it to Hachem who grabbed a stack of orange chips and plopped them down in the middle of the table. The initial raiser then snapped all in. The other two players who were in the hand scattered away folding as quickly as they could and Hachem made the call. Hachem held and his opponent tabled . The flop, turn, and river blanked out for both players and it was Hachem's pair of aces that came out ahead. Crossing the 200,000 mark Tony Hachem is quickly making his presence known here as they day comes to an end on Day 2B.
