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

Tabali Doubles Through Eames


John Eames came in for a raise to 32,000, and action folded all the way around to Keanu Tabali in the big blind. Tabali was on the short stack with 16,000 already in the middle, and he cut the chips out for the call, then stared at his remaining stack. After about 30 seconds, he peeked down at his cards, and said "what am I waiting for I'm all in." Eames quickly made the call, and the cards were flipped up.

Tabali: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Eames: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Tabali explained "I was just seeing if I should just call blind I didn't even look at my hand until the end." Eames seemed less then enthused by the explanation, but didn't make a big fuss over it. The flop came down {a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, keeping Tabali out in front. The turn came the {3-Clubs}, and Tabali was still in the lead, and still looking to dodge a queen. The river was a pain card, but it was the {j-Diamonds}, giving Tabali the double.
