It was the circuit event shown last night on ESPN at 9pm eastern. I don't remember the specifics, but TJ or Lee (don't remember who) raised to 30k with A8, I think Pham made it 50k (maybe more?) with 10Jos, and Hachem reraised 150 with KK. A8 folded and Pham pushed for around 250ish. Hachem called and the flop was J rag J and the board bricked out for Hachem and he was crippled to a very short stack.I could be wrong on the specifics, but it's what I can remember from memory.

Then came the hand. What followed next was a bombshell or an abomination, depending upon one's perspective. The hand clearly demonstrates that poker tournaments can be either won or lost within seconds. It all started when 2005 world poker champion Joe Hachem was dealt pocket Kings. After J.C. Tran made an initial 18,000 raise, Kido Pham re-raised another 50,000. Hachem must have thought he was in final table heaven. Pondering his move, Hachem re-raised again up to 150,000. Tran immediately folded and Pham moved over the top with an all-in re-raise, for 157,000 more. Hachem later admitted that he feared his opponent having pocket Aces. But there was no way to lay down the big hand. Hachem called and Pham knew immediately he had made the wrong move at the wrong time. Pham sheepishly showed J-10, a huge underdog to Hachem's powerhouse K-K. With 650,000 in the pot at stake (about half of the chips in play), it was to be the turning point of the final table. "I didn't want to play a big pot," Hachem said later. "But I made the right read and was the leader by a mile." When three cards fell on the flop, the second floor of the Ballys Casino was rocked to its foundation. It took a few seconds for Hachem's eyes to focus on the horror he was about to confront. Wham! J-J-2 (trip Jacks) twisted Pham from a big dog into a huge favorite and put the pocket Kings into a meat grinder. In an instant that will certainly haunt Hachem for some time, the Australian's dreams of winning his second WSOP title were demolished. Hachem failed to catch one of two remaining Kings and was left with just 40,000 in chips. The damage has clearly been done. Hachem looked like he had been hit in the stomach with a sledgehammer.

First he jumped around like an idiot, then said that he "felt it."

It is, perhaps, the most common trait of "The Donkey" to say something like "Felt it". Clearly, there was some psychic miracle at work, a divine stroke of genius, a favor bestowed upon the very, very poor call made by The Donk.What would I say? "Holy Crap! Did I ever get lucky there." Then, after Hachem had recovered, which could be days, I'd take him for a night out to his favorite restaurant, no holds barred."Felt it"...pshaw!

They all "feel it."I had a guy call a raise, call a pot-sized bet on the flop, call a pot + 10% sized bet on the turn and call a pot-sized bet on the river with a 5 high flush. He was calling down a board of Kh Kd Qh / As / 9h with a 2-5 hearts. After the hand, he messages "I worried you had a better flush than me." I had to message back, "No, I only had a KsJd. nh."
