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

Akenhead Loses Big Pot, Leaves Early For Dinner

• Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

We were walking towards James Akenhead's table, and saw him counting out a ton of chips. When we got to the table, we noticed that Jason James was counting out his chips, having just doubled up through Akenhead. James had {a-Spades}{k-Spades} and AKenhead was in the process of mucking {a-}{q-}. Given that the board read {4-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, we think that the money was in preflop. As a result of the hand, James has doubled up to 181,000, while Akenhead is left with 90,000. After losing the hand, Akenhead headed to the exit four minutes before the dinner break, needing a few minutes surely to collect his thoughts after that big hit.
