Eibinger Busts Ligeri in Huge Pot

Justin Ligeri

Tom Marchese had 175,000 in front of him on the button, having been called by Justin Ligeri under the gun. In the cutoff, though, Matthias Eibinger had moved all in. Marchese let his hand go after some thought, and Ligeri announced a call, jokingly asking if Eibinger wanted to run twice.

It was indeed a flip, Eibinger's {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} against {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The dealer spread a {2-Clubs}{q-Spades}{8-Spades} flop that left Ligeri all but toasted.

"It's over," he sighed.

Not quite, but the {a-Spades} turn did end it. The meaningless river was a {10-Diamonds} and Ligeri exited. Marchese said he had ace-king as well.
