It's a Trap!


John Eames, who's off to a lightning fast start, was recently heads up with 2011 World Series of Poker November Niner Anton Makiievskyi on a flop of {q-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Eames checked, Makiievskyi fired 1,500, and Eames called.

The turn was another king - the {k-Hearts} - and Eames checked again. Makiievskyi checked behind.

The river was the {6-Diamonds}, and Eames knuckled a third and final time. Makiievskyi checked behind, and tabled {9-}{7-}.

Eames, grinning ear-to-ear, tabled {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} for quad kings.

His trap didn't work, but Eames is still among our leaders with around 78,000 chips.
