Through the Lens: A Diamond in the Rough

Eldridge and Ingram clash throughout Poker After Dark’s “Run It Once” opener

Monday kicked off “Run it Once” week with the first of two Pot Limit Omaha cash games on Poker After Dark. “Diamond” Dave Eldridge booked the night’s biggest win and Joey Ingram managed to claw his way back into the black as well after a brutal start. RIO coach Kevin Rabichow also booked a small win on his Poker After Dark debut. The second $25/$50 session starts at 6 PM EST tonight and you can watch live exclusively on PokerGO!

Here is a collection of some of my favorite images from last night’s game.

Seth Davies has been a high roller tournament standout over the last few years, as the Oregon native has boosted his career live earnings over $3,600,000. Unfortunately, Davies had a rough go of it last night. He was on the wrong end of a few large pots, including a brutal cooler against David Eldridge. 
The previously mentioned Eldridge, nicknamed “Diamond Dave,” was the night’s biggest winner. Eldridge is a regular in the high stakes cash game scene and certainly pushed the action last night. Eldridge maintained his pressure throughout the entire session, stacking nearly everyone at the table at least once, with his most consistent opponent being Joey Ingram.
With Run It Once week running in the PokerGO Studio, the Poker Central Podcast boys caught up with the brains behind RIO, Phil Galfond. Be sure to be on a look out for their new podcast with Galfond which is set to be released last this week!
Joey Ingram has been one of the Pot Limit Omaha’s largest proponents for the last few years. Ingram got demolished early on in, but managed to claw his way out of the hole. On one of the last hands of the night Ingram doubled through Eldridge and then won another sizable pot to book a nearly $8,000 win. 
Kevin Rabichow also booked a win during his Poker After Dark debut. While the RIO coach is most known for his online game, he started his first live PokerGO Studio appearance on fire. Clearly, live or online, Rabichow knows how to operate with four cards. Can he follow up his first win with another? Watch more Run It Once week Pot Limit Omaha action tonight to find out!
