Cajelais Runs Into Aces After Big Win

Josh_Cahlik
Erik Cajelais Loses a Big One

Soon after serving a double knockout at his table, we found Erik Cajelais ship a massive amount of chips to the other side of the table.

An early position player raised to 32,000 only to have Cajelais three-bet to 75,000 from the seat next door. It folded around to Mazin Khoury in the big blind who tanked for about a minute before making it 200,000 total. The original raiser got out of the way and Cajelais five-bet all in. Khoury snap called and Cajelais found that he was way behind.

Cajelais: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Khoury: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}

The flop was {K-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} which was no help to Cajelais. He picked up additional outs when the {10-Hearts} came on the turn, hoping to either hit a queen or a jack to take down the pot. Unfortunately for Cajelais, the river was the {7-Diamonds} and Khoury's aces were able to hold.

Even though Cajelais' stack took this massive hit, he's still sitting more than healthy with 2,350,000 in chips.

Khoury, on the other hand, is thrilled to have reached the 2,000,000 mark.
