Bárbara Akemi is one of the most influential Brazilian names on the Twitch platform. She has already made history by winning the PokerStars Sunday Million live for many viewers. During the series, the CardRoom Poker team grinder continues her journey in online tournaments, often turning on live streams.
The result was a few interesting hands played during her crazy routine, one of which was quite entertaining. They were noticed on Tuesday afternoon. Bárbara played fortune teller, calling for the most unlikely cards and managing to avoid elimination at the ACR Poker Big 10 $55 final table.
The protagonist of this game is Brazilian Lucas Portella “lucasportella77”. Over 5 hands, the blinds were 35,000/70,000 and Barbara went all-in with a cutoff of 15.15 big blinds. The button and trumpet came through, but Lucas had the trumpet and the raise to pay off his compatriot.
The flop came and Barbara lost three outs as Lucas had a nine of clubs, which would give her a flush. However, the Brazilian gambled a few more outs, including a King of Diamonds, which would complete her sequence.
At this point she was in trouble but took a different route and yelled louder. Any player would have said Ten or Queen, but Barbara emphasized and said “King of Hearts.” The move was one move that didn’t change the situation at all and maintained Lucas’ advantage.
Enlightened or “psychic” Barbara did not lose hope, and her pleas were answered by the deck. On the river, Lucas’ presence at the table delighted her and kept her alive in the game. “Oh my God, I couldn’t believe it, I could have gotten the Queen of Hearts or the Ten, but I asked the King of Hearts, help!” She ended up finishing third, winning $3,517.
