For Denny Axel, his 11th cash at the World Series of Poker has become one of $21,977 after finishing in 8th place. The former owner of CardPlayer magazine was all in for his last few bets and both Kate Hoang and William Kopp went after him.

Hoang and Kopp were building a side pot as the board ran out {4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. On the river, Hoang checked, Kopp bet, and Hoang took over a minute before folding.

Denny Axel: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}
William Kopp: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Axel's hand was second best and he graciously shook everyone's hand before walking off the stage.
