Event 14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Battle of the British Short Stacks

MarcC • Level 6: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Nick Gibson and John Eames are the two short stacks at their table and one just doubled through the other.

Gibson open shoved for 16,600 from the cut-off and Eames re-shoved from the small blind. The big blind folded.

Gibson said he only looked at a king. He found a queen to go with it for {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}. "How do you find that?" replied Eames as he tabled his {a-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}.

The board ran {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{j-Spades} to hand Gibson the pot. Eames dropped to around 20,000 chips.
