Cajelais Casually Crushes

Shamus • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

A player in middle position opened with a raise to 300, and Erik Cajelais called from the cutoff. It folded to the big blind who reraised to 1,500, and both of the remaining players called.

The flop came {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{K-Spades}. The big blind pushed out a bet of 2,100, the middle position player folded, and Cajelais called. The turn was the {Q-Diamonds}, bringing another bet from Cajelais' opponent, this time for 3,500. Cajelais again thrust a tattooed arm forward, setting out the chips the call.

The river brought the {A-Clubs}. Again the big blind bet, this time 5,525. Cajelais wasted no time nonchalantly setting his entire stack out in front of him. His opponent -- covered by Cajelais -- didn't react immediately, and as time passed his agony increased. He said something about not being able to beat Cajelais, to which the latter responded "It's hard to beat king-jack."

Finally Cajelais' opponent let go of his hand, and Cajelais immediately flipped his cards over -- {5-Spades}{8-Spades}! His opponent was still shaking his head (as were others at the table), as Cajelais ordered his current stack of about 50,000.
