El Khoury Takes a Few

Shamus • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

On the hand following Jeffrey Hakim's elimination, the table folded around to Robert Romeo who opened with a raise to 180,000 from the cutoff seat, good enough to claim the blinds and antes.

The next hand saw Remi Castaignon open-raising the minimum to 160,000 from the small blind, then Joseph El Khoury called from a seat over. The flop brought three big cards — {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{K-Diamonds} — and both players checked fairly quickly. The turn was the {9-Clubs} and brought a couple of checks again.

The river then brought the {5-Clubs}. Castaignon checked once more, and when El Khoury took the invitation to push out a bet of 130,000 the chip leader let it go.
