Antonius Cripples Eames

Patrik Antonius (on Day 3)

The new seat draw could not have been worse for John Eames, who found himself sat to the right of Patrik Antonius and Andy Moseley. In fact it was Antonius that may have ended Eames' hope of WSOPE glory in this following hand.

Eames opened to 26,000 under the gun and Antonius called in the next seat. Only two of shared the flop of {10-Spades} {8-Spades} {2-Clubs} and Eames bet 45,000 and Antonius called. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and Eames now checked and Antonius bet 80,000. Eames took maybe a minute before making the call and we saw the last card and it was the {A-Diamonds}. Eames once again checked and Antonius bet 210,000. Eames had 290,000 and after a few moments squirming in his seat he made the call and did not like the results.

Antonius: {2-Diamonds} {2-Hearts}

Antonius had the full house and Eames folded his hand before telling the table he had {A-} {10-}.
