Former chip monster Fredrik Akerholt has taken a massive hit less than half an hour short of the close of play! Three players made it to the river of an 8s Qs 5c Qh 3s board, and it looked as though Anneli Mägi had check-raised all in to a bet from Akerholt – either way, the third player folded while Akerholt and Mägi got the lot in.
Akerholt: As 2s for top flush
Mägi: Qc 5s for a full house
Mägi enjoyed a full double up to 165k, while Akerholt was reduced to 95k or so – not significantly above the 78k average stack with 59 players remaining.
