Event #43: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

King Andre


Nachman Berlin opened to 600,000 from the button only to have Andre Akkari move all in for 5,290,000 from the big. After deliberating for a few moments, Berlin made the call to put Akkari at risk.

Berlin: {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Akkari: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

As Akkari headed over to friend and fellow Team PokerStars Pro Gualter Salles, the dealer dropped a {7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop to keep Akkari in the lead.

The dealer followed with the {j-Spades} and {3-Spades} to send the Brazilian cheer squad into a massive cheer as Akkari snagged a huge double to over 10.6 million as Berlin was left with a little over 2.2 million in chips.
