Akkari’s Career

Akkari started to play poker professionally in 2006, and first cashed at the World Series of Poker in 2008, one year after signing as a PokerStars Ambassador. He says that his first year at the WSOP was “incredible.”

“I spent two years watching every show, collecting every news article about WSOP, tracking all the champions, I was crazy about it,” he told PokerNews in 2020. “After I signed with PokerStars, and the opportunity to be there was ON!

“When I first got into the Rio, it was like I knew everything already! It was like I was at Disneyland in that moment. It was incredible for me!”

The largest cash of Akkari’s career is of course his WSOP bracelet win, but he has numerous cashes on the European Poker Tour and in the PokerStars Championship. In 2017, he finished fifth in the PokerStars Championship Barcelona Main Event for $373,767. Six years later, the Brazilian again finished fifth in the EPT Barcelona Main Event, this time for $424,611.
