Coming in to today, Acain's largest tournament score was for $30,000 in the $400 No Limit Hold'em MonsterStack (Event #68) In the DeepStack Championship Poker Series II, Las Vegas in 2021.

Action of the Day

Acain started the day fourth in chips but struck lightening early on as he chipped up in a multi-way pot against Isidro Martinez and Christian Taylor. He then continued his run up the leaderboard as he eliminated Sridhar Sangannagari in 11th, Yavine Brewer in 10th and Isidro Martinez in ninth propelling his stack to the chip lead.

Taylor regained his lead when they were down to three-handed, but Acain soon turned the tables on Taylor as he won a massive flip for his tournament life with ace-jack with one diamond against king-ten on a ten-high all diamond board.

"Amazing, I feel pretty good about it", said Acain to in his post-game interview. "It's like my dream come true''

Acain started playing poker in 2008. "My skills developed in 2013 and I never looked back after that. I was mainly a cash game player before."

The big moment came when Acain shoved into Kingery's aces with ace-three off but went runner-runner flush to score the victory. "I got so lucky on that one. I knew he got me when he snap called. Poker god is with me"

Congratulations to Henry Acain for winning his first bracelet in Event #5: $500 The Housewarming No-Limit Hold'em.

Henry Acain open-jammed his stack into the big blind of Jared Kingery who could not call fast enough as he picked up a monster.

Henry Acain: {a-Clubs}{3-Spades}

The flop looked as clean as it could get for Kingery when it came {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, but when the turn {k-Clubs} and river {4-Clubs} hit it was the runner-runner flush of Acain that won him the gold bracelet and eliminated Kingery in 2nd place.

The action picked up when Christian Taylor opened the small big to 32,000,000. Henry Acain three-bet to 119,000,000.

"I like my hand this time" Taylor said before making the call.

The flop was {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, Taylor checked to Acain who shoved all-in for 227,000,000 which was quickly called by Taylor and the hands were revealed.

Henry Acain: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Christian Taylor: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

It was virtually a flip when Taylor made top pair but Acain had two overs and the nut flush draw.

The turn {9-Diamonds} sealed the deal for Acain as Taylor was now drawing dead. The {j-Clubs} completed the board, skyrocketing Acain's stack to roughly 75% of the chips in play.
