James Akenhead is Crippled
Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Marcel Bjerkmann raises to 14,000 in first position and James Akenhead three-bet to 36,000 in the hijack seat. Bjerkmann, of course, made the call and the two of them share a J T 5 flop. Bjerkmann checks and Akenhead moves 45,000 over the line. Back to Bjerkmann and he moves all-in and Akenhead calls.
Akenhead turns over A A and Bjerkmann turns over J T for top two pair. The turn is the 6 and the river is the 4 and Akenhead stands up to leave. He is eventually told to sit back down because he has 23,000 chips left whilst Bjerkmann has 340,000.
