Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Akenhead Looking Strong

• Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
James Akenhead

James Akenhead came into today as one of the chip leaders, and after a slow start to the day he has come storming back, recently collecting a knockout to boost his chip count to double the average in the room.

Santiago Nadal moved all in under the gun for around 20,000, and action folded around to Akenhead, who got the count and then made the call. The rest of the table folded, and the players tabled their cards.

Akenhead: {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Nadal: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

As we have seen several times already today, this good old fashioned race turned into a beatdown on the flop, as it came {j-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, giving Akenhead a set and the big lead. Nadal would need runner runner, but he wouldn't get it, as it came {3-Clubs} and {4-Diamonds}. Nadal was sent to the rail, and the rest of Akenhead's table mates can not be happy that he is once again collecting chips.
