Eames Doubles Through Werthmann


As you can see from our recent posts, there have been a lot of double ups and no bustouts as of late.

Here's one more:

Thom Werthmann called an under-the-gun raise to 16,000 from early position and action folded around to John Eames, who raised pot to 49,000 even. The original raiser folded and Werthmann decided to flat.

The flop came {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Eames snap-shoved his remaining stack of about 20,000 in. Werthmann quickly called.

Werthmann: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Eames: {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The {9-Diamonds} turn and {Q-Spades} river kept Eames in the lead with a pair of aces and he doubled to 120,000.

Werthmann is down to 150,000.
