John Eames and Grayson Ramage will no doubt have tussled with each other many times in the online poker world, and now they are seated at each other's table here in picturesque Prague.
It was Ramage who opened the betting with a raise to 1,200 from under the gun, a bet that only Eames — seated three seats to Ramage's left — called. The pair shared a flop, Ramage checked and Eames checked behind.
The turn brought the into play and now Ramage lead, making it 1,600 to play. Eames raised to 5,000 and Ramage went into the tank. For the first time in the hand Ramage looked away from the table and glanced at Eames. Then he grabbed a handful of green chips, gave them a riffle and put them back in his stack. After 30-40 seconds of thinking about what the best course of action was, Ramage folded and left Eames to pick up the pot.
