Two Team Pros Tumble

Andre Akkari

We've just lost a pair of Team PokerStars Pros in quick succession.

Andre Akkari was getting pretty short on chips when he took his stand with {A-} {10-}. An opponent woke up with {A-} {J-}, though, and a board full of blanks sent the Brazilian on his way.

Eugene Katchalov was the other victim of the first few minutes of Level 6. The Ukrainian was lucky enough to find himself the beneficiary of pocket aces versus pocket queens, but his overpair could not hold. A third queen appeared on the turn, and Katchalov has been forced to exit just when things were starting to get interesting.
