Akkari & Bonomo Towering High Over at Table 18


We saw Balasz Botond leaving Table 18 and made our way over to discover that he had just been eliminated by Andre Akkari. The dealer had already mucked the cards so we didn't get the hand, but we do know Botond sent about 30,000 Akkari's way.

In the very next hand, Justin Bonomo raised to 1,400 under the gun and received a call from Hauke Heseding on the button. Both blinds folded and it was heads-up action to the {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} flop. Bonomo fired out 2,200, Heseding called, and then both players checked the {2-Clubs} turn as well as the {K-Spades} river. Bonomo tabled {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and it was good as Heseding mucked.
