Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Akkari Short Annnnnnddddd Out

Andre Akkari

Bracelet winner and Team PokerStars Pro (Brazil) Andre Akkari is out of the Main Event.

We saw Akkari lose a few hands to Mike Matusow including this one where on a flop of {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} Matusow bet out 575 and Akkari raised it up to 1,625. Matusow made the call and the two saw the turn {7-Hearts} both players checked and the river came {7-Clubs} Both players checked again and Matusow announced, "I would've played kings or aces the same way" as he showed down {9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for top pair. Akkari mucked and was down to just 12,000 at that point.

While we missed the action, we did see him getting up and walking away from the table just a few hands later. Although he made an early Main Event exit, it does not overshadow his excellent series and bracelet win with one of the most exciting rails the WSOP has ever seen.
