Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Isaacs Can't Outrun Akenhead

Susie Isaacs and James Akenhead were both short when they got all of their chips in the middle to race. It was Isaac's {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} against Akenhead's {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. The board fell {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts}, and Akenhead took the hand with nines and eights. When the stacks were counted down, Isaacs got a 2,500-chip refund, while Akenhead doubled to 16,000.
