Akenhead Gives Perry the Worst Sweat
Greg Perry opened in middle position with a raise to 22,000 before James Akenhead reraised, making it 65,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Perry who four-bet, making it 150,000, and Akenhead asked for a look at his stack before moving all in for more. Perry quickly called.
The flop came down which gave both players a pair but made it so Akenhead could be the only player to win the pot. The turn was the which now gave Akenhead a realistic chance of taking it down, but the river was the meaning both players would chop the pot.
"Why you gotta make me sweat like that?" Perry asked after the hand. "That was not fun."
Akenhead, as well as some of the other members of the table, let out some laughs before he offered Perry a fistbump, which was returned with a laugh.

Takayama Loses Loads to Lavenburg
A big pot was brewing between Mike Takayama and Michael Lavenburg, and the other players, including Ema Zajmovic, were waiting with their chips already racked up, as the table was the next to break. According to Zajmovic, Takayama had raised first to act and picked up one caller in the cutoff, Lavenburg raised on the button, and Takayama was the only caller.
On the flop, Takayama check-called a bet to head to the turn, and there, the first bracelet winner from the Philippines checked once more. Lavenburg now made it 175,000 to go and Takayama called. On the river, the board paired and Takayama checked the third street in a row.
Lavenburg bet 450,000 and hid his face behind sunglasses and a cap, staring at the middle of the table while trying not to give away any emotion. Takayama stared over for more than two minutes before announcing the call and Lavenburg turned over for aces and sevens. That was good enough to win the pot, as Takayama tapped the table in defeat before heading to his new table.
