Hands #79-83: Sorrentino Doubles on the River

mnuwwarah • Niveau 36: 250,000-500,000, 50,000 ante

Hand #79: Andre Akkari opened to 1.1 million under the gun with {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and got flatted by big blind Lachezar Petkov with {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. Petkov checked after flopping top set on {5-Hearts}{k-Spades}{j-Hearts}. Akkari fired in 900,000 and Petkov continued to keep the pot on the small side with a call. Both checked when a {7-Spades} hit, bringing an {a-Hearts}.

Petkov checked and Akkari waved the white flag.

Hand #80: Brian Kaufman opened for 1,050,000 with {k-Clubs}{j-Spades} in the cutoff. Akkari put in the requisite calling chips with {a-Spades}{6-Hearts} in the big blind. Akkari paired when {6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{9-Spades} hit, keeping his lead. Check-check and a {7-Spades} hit. Akkari checked again and Kaufman wanted to see another free one: {3-Spades}. Akkari checked a third time and Kaufman put in 1.3 million, winning the pot when Akkari folded.

Hand #81: Petkov raised all in on the button with {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and swept up the blinds and antes.

Hand #82: Petkov came in raising with 1.1 million in the cutoff with {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}. Akkari was dealt {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} on the button and three-bet to 2,775,000. Petkov considered things and mucked.

Hand #83: Akkari opened to 1.1 million in the cutoff with {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}. Raffaele Sorrentino shoved all in with {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} for 7.1 million in the big blind.

The {k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts} kept things clean for Akkari. A {2-Hearts} turn did nothing for the Italian. However, the {a-Hearts} popped off the deck to give Sorrentino the double and keep him live for a second PokerStars Championship title.
