Event 1: "I Hate Ace-King"

$500 + $60 Big Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

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.
