Giuseppe Sammartino raised to 18,000 in middle position and Chris Moorman cold-called in the cut-off. Action on to John Eames in the big blind and he moved all-in for around 85,000. Sammartino was the short stack and immediately called and Moorman folded. Eames had Sammartino covered in the hand.
"That's tilting," said Eames.
But every cloud has a silver lining as Moorman later told Eames he had and if Sammartino would have shoved pre-flop Moorman would have called, as would Eames, and he would have eliminated them both. Eames now has to do a Mike Leah if he want to make the money.
