Event #31: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Akkari Lays One Down

LaneAnderson • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Andre Akkari's reputation must be earning him respect at the table. He was given a walk in the big blind, and he laughingly flipped over two black aces and picked up the uncontested blinds and antes.

Later, on a board reading {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, Akkari had a bet of 3,300 in front of him and one other opponent in the hand to make the call. The river card was the {a-Spades} and Akkari checked. His opponent pushed all in for 7,000 and Akkari spent a minute of consideration before folding. The winner of the hand voluntarily showed {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} for trip aces.
