Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Eames Knocks Off a Short Stack

Action folded to John Eames in late position, and he min-raised to 6,000. It folded to the big blind, who put out a pot sized raise of 16,500, leaving himself less then 10,000 behind. Eames tanked for about 30 seconds before going all in, and his opponent made the call.

Eames: {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

Eames and his opponent were off to the races, with Eames needing to catch a pair to win, and he did just that on the {4-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop. His opponent was drawing thin, and he couldn't catch up, as the turn and river both brought eights. Eames collected the bounty, and he has now joined the 200k club.
