Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Andre Akkari Flying High

World Series of Poker bracelet winner Andre Akkari is riding high with a stack of 45,000. We wandered over to ask Akkari how he managed to obtain such a big stack so early on and he told us that he is slowly grown it over a lot of pots. He did give us one big hand though.

The button raised to 350 and Akkari three-bet to 750 from the blinds and his opponent called. The flop was {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} Akkari bet 1,100, his opponent raised to 3,900, Akkari moved all-in and his opponent called. Akkari turned over {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} and his opponent held {A-Diamonds} {J-}. The four-flush stayed away and Akkari now has 45,000 chips.
