Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Akenhead Cracks the 100K Mark

James Akenhead

James Akenhead raised in late position only to have Maxim Lykov reraise from the cutoff to 2,250. Akenhead responded by making it 5,750, Lykov popped it to 9,000, and Akenhead flatted. The duo watched the flop come down {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Akenhead check-called a bet of 7,800 from Lykov.

Both players then checked the {K-Hearts} turn and watched as the {3-Diamonds} was put out on the river. Akenhead immediately led out for 16,675 and Lykov mucked just as quickly.
