Championship: Ebanks Makes The Tough Call

$3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship
Level 31: 60,000/120,000/20,000 Ante

Andre Crooks opened pre-flop for 250,000 and Joe Ebanks called from the small blind. The flop was Ah5d4s and both players checked.

The turn was the 6c and Ebanks checked again. Crooks bet 475,000 and Ebanks made a quick call.

The river was the 7s and Ebanks checked with no hesitation. Crooks made a large bet of 1,450,000. Ebanks shifted uncomfortably in chair and then tanked for several minutes, often with a perplexed look on his face. Eventually he made the call, tabling Ac9c for a pair of aces. That was good enough as Crooks mucked his hand.
