André Akkari has a solid chance to win another bracelet ($3,000 H.O.R.S.E.) in Event #91. He was one of the last 18 contenders for the title but fell short on a crucial day. The PokerStars Ambassador was eliminated in 16th place in a five-event mixed event.
Akkari was awarded $7,305 for beating 331 entrants. He announced to World of Poker and social media that this will be his last event at the 2023 WSOP. He has won three ITM titles in $10,000 buy-in tournaments, finished 10th at the unofficial final table and finished 20th.
Akari faced a very difficult situation. The final sprint on HORSE. Of the 18 players in attendance, 11 were bracelet holders, including two Poker Hall of Famers (Barbara Enright and Todd Brunson). The Brazilian lost a crucial pot in limit hold’em and then saw Razz reach the bottom line.
André was short-stacked with T-High’s K43/328T losing to Ryan Miller’s 934/ 26A2 for a six-high run in the final hand of the tournament.
