Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Active Eilers

Shamus • Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Ben Eilers was flirting with the 400,000-chip mark earlier in this level, but has dropped a few here during the final stretch run of Day 2b.

Just now Eilers opened with a raise to 2,600 from the hijack seat and got three callers -- the cutoff and both blinds. "Is that a call?" said Eilers to one of the blinds, who confirmed it was, adding "Could be a fun pot."

The flop came {6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and it checked around to the cutoff who bet 5,100. Only Eilers stayed in. The turn was the {2-Hearts}, and Eilers again check-called his opponent's bet, this time for 13,000.

The river was the {6-Hearts}, putting a second pair on board. Eilers checked, and his opponent didn't hesitate before betting 26,000. Eilers thought about a half-minute, then called. His opponent tabled {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and Eilers mucked.

Eilers has about 310,000 with just a couple of hands to go.
