Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em

Shoes Off! (If Ya Love John Eames)

• Nível 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

On the last hand before the break, Richard Haile raised to 2,100 in early position, and John Eames flatted a couple seats over. Jackson Su wanted to play for more, though, and he squeezed in a reraise to 6,100 from the hijack seat. Haile made the call, but the action froze on Eames. He eyed up the stack of Su (~50,000), then reraised all in for 47,800 over the top. Su tanked for a couple minutes and called, while Haile folded with a frustrated flick. The stacks were close, and the hands were on their backs.

Eames: {K-Hearts} {K-Clubs}
Su: {A-Spades} {K-Diamonds}

Su was crushed by his misstep, and the dealer would provide him no help. The board ran out {6-Clubs} {5-Spades} {7-Hearts} {7-Spades} {7-Diamonds}, and Eames' full house earns him the double. When the chips were counted down, Su was left with just 1,100 of them with which to mount a comeback.

Eames is now over the century mark with 102,600 chips.
