Collins (left) Knocks Out AK
As we take a lap around the Event Center a player moves all in uncontested to win the blinds and antes and tables A♥ K♥ saying, "I hate ace-king. I've had it six times today's and I've lost every time with it."
After his declaration, the AK curse is realized at two neighboring tables.
First, a player holding Big Slick is all in against the pocket 10s of Brian Collins (Albany, NY). The player doesn't improve and is on the rail.
A few seconds later, Bernie Dominiak (Pittsburgh, PA) knocks out a player holding AK when his pocket 8s win the race.
Collins and Dominiak helping illustrate why AK is such a despised hand.
