Action folded to James Carroll on the button and he raised to 11,000. McLean Karr pushed back from the big blind by making it 33,000 to go, but he was soon met with a pot-sized raise from Carroll. Karr put in another raise and Carroll called off his remaining stack, which wasn't that much.
We're not exaggerating when we say the pocket pairs have won every similar race we've written about today, so we weren't expecting any different. True to form, the board ran out and the eights held to eliminate Carroll.
