Akery-raise with the Goods

[user46298] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 100 ante

Monster hand, monster flop, weird out of position hand for Peter Akery just now - he cold fourbet 13,800 out of a 50,000 stack from the big blind preflop, prompting a lengthy dwell from first raiser Andrew Li. Li passed, but Johan Verhagen (having made it 6,000) called.

The flop: {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Slow check. Slow bet of 7,200 from Verhagen; Akery called.

Turn: {9-Clubs}: Slow check again. Now Verhagen bet 12,200. Akery called (now with 16,000 behind).

River: {6-Diamonds}: Akery checked a third time but his hopes for further value for his {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} were dashed when Verhagen finally gave up, showing {4-}{4-}. Li muttered something about passing queens pre, and Akery nearly got the double up he was looking for.
