James Turns Babiarz into an Elimination

MartianNews • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Jason James

Jason James opened to 24,000, Thomas Babiarz made the call and the dealer turned over [kxqx3] on the flop. Action checked to James who put in a bet of 24,000, Babiarz check-raised to 60,000 and James made the call.

An {a-} landed on the turn, Babiarz moved all in for around 300,000 and James snap-called. Babiarz tabled {k-}{q-} for two pair and was disgusted when he saw the cards of James who flipped over {a-}{q-}, giving him a higher two pair on the turn.

The river was a brick as James scooped in the pot, eliminating Babiarz from the tournament and drawing himself close to the one million chip mark.
