Everything Pain-Free So Far For Akenhead

Every time we've walked past James Akenhead today, his count has been a bit higher than it was the last time we checked. A moment ago, we wandered by just in time to see him make a river bet on a {J-Hearts} {5-Spades} {A-Hearts} {J-Spades} {9-Clubs}. There was about 12,000 in the pot, and Akenhead's bet of 9,250 was eventually paid off by his heads-up opponent.

At showdown, the Brit's {5-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} was the best hand, and the baby full house moves him up even further. It looks like he's at about 65,000 now -- the biggest stack on our board.
