John Eames has not had a bad WSOPE. He made the final table of Event #2, €1,090 NLHE where he finished in 7th place for €22,449 and also cashed in Event #6, €1,620 Six-Max PLO in 32nd place for €2,616. Today he has a tough task because he is playing the 26BB stack, meaning he is going to have to get lucky, somewhere along the way, if he is to join Shawn Buchanan as a three-time 2011 WSOPE casher. Here he is trying to find some of that luck but not getting any eventual need of it.
Anthony Lellouche raised to 5,400 in the hijack and and when it folded around to Eames in the big blind he moved all-in but Lellouche folded instantly.
