Alert Eilert Reads Right, Still Calls El Khoury

Shamus • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Following a cutoff raise by Joseph El Khoury, Eilert Eilertsen defended his big blind with a call, and the pair saw the flop come {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Eilertsen checked, El Khoury bet 41,000, and Eilertsen called. Both players then checked the {J-Spades} turn.

The river brought the {10-Clubs}. This time Eilertsen pushed out a bet of 70,000, and after about a minute El Khoury responded with a raise to 210,000.

Eilertsen nodded, saying "ace-queen" as he sat back to contemplate the situation. Finally after about two minutes he leaned forward to set out the calling chips, saying "Show me your ace-queen" as he did.

El Khoury then obliged, turning over {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, and dragged the pot.
