UK Poker Pro John Eames Hits Biggest Score Ever In Las Vegas

UK Poker Pro John Eames Hits Biggest Score Ever In Las VegasPoker pro John Eames has just won the biggest score of his poker career after taking down the WSOP Circuit Main Event in Las Vegas for $289,706. On his way to victory, the British poker pro managed to defeat a field of 1,044 players over three days in order to secure his 7th career tournament title, and boost his life time earnings to $2,046,464.
Counted amongst John Eames’ other accolades are victories at the 2010 EPT Vienna for $172,320, the 2011 EPT Parague for $136,235, and the 2013 EPT London for $148,120. In addition, Eames has notched up a further $248,869 playing online tournaments under the screen name Johne147.
The Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino was the seat of Eames’ latest triumph, with its $1,675 Main Event attracting an impressive sized field to create a prize pool worth $1,559,902. The competition was also brimming with top talent, and amongst the notable pros subsequently seeing a return on their buy-ins was Joseph Cheong in 95th ($3,132), Scott Epstein in 76th ($3,696), Eric Baldwin in 59th ($4,400), Scott Davies in 42nd ($5,403), Dan O’Brien in 40th ($5,403), Jeff Fielder in 12th ($23,020), and Chris Lindh in 10th ($23,020).
At the final table of nine, John Eames (A-5) then scored a double elimination of Quang Ngo (A-8) and Jonathan Neckar (A-K) after the board rolled out 7-7-5-3-7, with the players exiting the tournament in 8th ($35,861) and 7th ($45,555) respectively.
Eames (A-J) followed up by eliminating Brad Libson (K-J) in 5th ($76,092), Dustin Johns in 4th ($100,067), and Ping Liu in 3rd ($133,110) to force heads-up play against Matt Berkey for the title. However, there was to be no quick resolution and it would take a further  two hours and 82 hands before the deciding hand was played with Eames (Q-Q) and Berkey (9-6) all-in on an 8–7-7 flop. The 4 and A on turn and river changed nothing, and so Matt Berkey finished the runner-up for $179,119, while John Eames scored a famous victory in Las Vegas.
Final Table Results:
1 John Eames – $289,706
2 Matt Berkey – $179,119
3 Ping Liu – $133,110
4 Dustin Johns – $100,067
5 Brad Libson – $76,092
6 Corey Emery – $58,537
7 Jonathan Neckar – $45,555
8 Quang Ngo – $35,861
9 Michael Skomac – $28,654
