Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

That's Tilting

Giuseppe Sammartino raised to 18,000 in middle position and Chris Moorman cold-called in the cut-off. Action on to John Eames in the big blind and he moved all-in for around 85,000. Sammartino was the short stack and immediately called and Moorman folded. Eames had Sammartino covered in the hand.


Sammartino{7-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds}
Eames{A-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}

Board: {8-Hearts} {4-Spades} {2-Clubs} {J-Hearts} {7-Hearts}

"That's tilting," said Eames.

But every cloud has a silver lining as Moorman later told Eames he had {A-Hearts} {9-Hearts} and if Sammartino would have shoved pre-flop Moorman would have called, as would Eames, and he would have eliminated them both. Eames now has to do a Mike Leah if he want to make the money.
