Akkari Finds Double

Andre Akkari getting congratulated by his rail

Andre Akkari limped the button for 200,000 only to have Nachman Berlin move all in for slightly less then 10 million. Akkari paused, checked his hole cards, and then made the call for his 3,025,000 total.

Akkari: {A-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Berlin: {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

With both rails screaming for numerous cards, the {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop would put Akkari into a near-unbeatable lead.

The turn and river of the {3-Diamonds} and {9-Hearts} would ensure an Akkari double to over 6 million as Berlin still holds the slight lead with 6.7 million in chips.
