Manole Busts James in Battle of 888poker Qualifiers

zedmaster84 • Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Mihai Manole

Jason James raised on the button and Mihai Manole defended his big blind to see a {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop, which brought a check by Manole, a continuation bet of James and a call.

Both checked the {7-Spades} turn and Manole also checked the {10-Spades} on the river. James now bet 75,000 and Manole jammed to send James into the think tank. He had around 300,000 behind and called it off after two minutes of consideration.

Manole turned over {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for the straight and James ended up second-best with {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for two pair.
