Andre Akkari Eliminated in 5th Place (€319,760)

KaleGozer • Level 37: 300,000-600,000, 100,000 ante
Lachezar Petkov and Andre Akkari

Hand #95: In the first hand after the blinds went up, Lachezar Petkov open-shoved from the small blind. Andre Akkari called all in for his last 7,775,000 from the big blind.

Lachezar Petkov: {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Andre Akkari: {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

The Bulgarian and Brazilian rail got on their feet to cheer for their respective champions. The {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop kept Akkari in the lead but Petkov picked up some counterfeit outs. The {Q-Spades} turn was safe for Akkari as well. Petkov needed an ace, queen, nine or five on the river to win.

The river was the {5-Clubs} and the Bulgarian rail exploded. Akkari's deep run finally came to an end in fifth place. The popular Team PokerStars Pro said his goodbyes as he walked off the stage.

After receiving support from his countrymen, Akkari headed for the payout desk to collect €319,760 in winnings. With the cash, Akkari surpassed fellow Team PokerStars Pro Felipe Ramos on the Brazilian all-time money list.
