PokerStars Team Pro Andre Akkari, who hails from Brazil, has made his presence felt here in the Brasilia Room. The longtime pro, who took down the crown in Event #43 ($1500 No-Limit Hold'em) for $675,117 at the 2011 WSOP, has built a huge stack here today courtesy of a massive triple-up hand. We missed the action ourselves, but Akkari took to Twitter to celebrate the win, and while we can't translate from Portuguese, the ear to ear smile Akkari flashed while stacking his new chips spoke the universal language of celebration.
