Event 54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Nick Abou Risk Leads; Eames Hits a One Outer Against McCorkell

In a few minutes time we are going to lose the green chips, and it's about time because the stacks are starting to get pretty sizeable. A few of the players who have sizeable stacks include Gianluca Rullo (84k), Jonas Mackoff (80k), Mark Herm (80k), Joao Simao (76k), Will Jaffe (72k) and the new chip leader Nick Abou Risk with 86,000.

Players out include Jason Helder (hence the beefed up stack of Mackoff), Jason Wheeler (after running a set of kings into a set of aces…ouch!), Ylon Schwartz, Ogjnen Sekularac and a funny hand involving World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet holder Craig McCorkell and here it is.

We arrived at the table with the full board out on display.

Board: {10-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {Q-Hearts}

The chips were being pushed in the direction of a player holding {A-Clubs} {4-Clubs} in front of him, and they were being taken out of the stack of an empty seat. The table told us that the seat belonged to Craig McCorkell. Once the count had been complete McCorkell (who had called a shove holding {10-} {9-} on the turn) still had around 500 chips left. John Eames - who was sharing a table with McCorkell rang him on his mobile number and told him to return to the table.

When McCorkell got back Eames raised to 1,200, McCorkell moved all-in blind and the rest of the table allowed them to have a showdown. Eames showed pocket fives and McCorkell turned over pocket queens. The player to Eames left then tells him that he folded a five leaving just one out in the deck - cue the board.

Board: {9-Spades} {9-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {5-Spades}

Eames hits his one outer which pays for the price of the phone call needed to get McCorkell back to his seat.
