Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Someone Hands Eames a Double Up On a Plate

John Eames has found himself with twice as many chips as he had a few minutes ago. There was a limper under the gun before Eames made it 2,000 to play. The button made the call as did the initial limper. The flop was {10-} {10-} {2-} {rainbow} and the limper fired a bet of 6,000 into a pot of around 7,500. Eames had 34,000 behind and both the limper and button had 90,000 stacks. Eames made the call, as did the button, and all three players saw a turn. The turn was the {8-} and the limper moved all-in for 90,000. Eames told us that this was a tough spot because he knew the button had a ten so what the hell did the limper have? Eames made the call and the button folded {Q-} {10-}. Eames tabled {A-} {10-} and the limper had {6-} {6-} and when the river was six-less Eames doubled up to 85,000.
