Eames Leaves Marrakech
Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante
Featured Blog, John Eames, Casino de Marrakech, WPT Marrakech, Season X
John Eames has just left the competition in a coin flip.
There is a raise to 1,025 from middle position before the cutoff made the cold-call. Eames is seated on the button behind a stack of 21,000 and he squeezes for 3,400. The initial raiser makes the call but the cold-caller re-raises to 9,400. Eames moves all-in for 21,000, the original raiser folds and the player in the cutoff calls.
Eames - A K
Cutoff - J J
The Jack of spades hits the flop and although it gave Eames a few backdoor draws, he was dead on the turn, and logging on to find a flight back home to good old blighty.
