John Eames is a UK Pro with close to $1.5 million in tournament earnings. His impressive results include a 3rd place finish at the European Poker Tour (EPT) in Copenhagen in 2011 for $257,011 and two World Series of Poker (WSOP) final tables that include Event #5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em where he finished in 8th place for $18,529 just a few short weeks ago.
Earlier we brought you news that Eames had fallen to just 5,000 before spinning it up to 50,000. That was when he was plying his trade in the Tan Section over at Table #354. That table has just broke and Eames was shifted to the nearby Table #353 and this happened in his very first hand.
Joseph Kuether raised to 4,000 from under the gun and Eames three-bet from position. A few folds later and Kuether announced he was all-in and Eames called instantly.
The board ran out and the total count of Eames stack was 78,700. A setback for Kuether, but great news for Eames.
