Akkari Busts Just Short of the Money

Andre Akkari from day 2

Andre Akkari knew he had a battle on his hands when he came back today. He had to get his 46,300 stack moving to have any chance of cashing. It didn't work out well for him.

He was down to 37,000 when he three-bet all in from early position over an under the gun raise from Isaac Haxton. It was Haxton himself who filled us in on these details and he informed us that a player in the small blind tried to isolate with a raise to 55,000. The American, sat with pocket kings in the hole, put a stop to that and shoved.

He successfully isolated Akkari and managed to win the pot and take the scalp of the Team PokerStars Pro.
