Level 20: 10,000/20,000 (20,000)
Charif Akhoun was busy in back-to-back hands putting players at risk. First, Michel Glansberg three-bet jammed for about 10 big blinds and was called by Akhoun.
Michel Glansberg: A♥10♥
Charif Akhoun: 6♥6♠
Glansberg connected with his ten on the 8♠10♠K♠ flop and was still ahead on the 4♥ turn. However, the J♠ river improved Akhoun to a flush to eliminate Glansberg.
The next hand, Antonio Brancati open-jammed for 125,000 from the button and Akhoun called from the big blind.
Antonio Brancati: 8♥8♦
Charif Akhoun: 9♠7♠
Brancati’s snowmen held on the 5♠K♦J♣2♥4♥ runout to double his stack instead of meeting the same fate as Glansberg.
Charif Akhoun – 500,000
Michel Glansberg – 280,000
Michel Glansberg – 0
