Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Esfandiari Wins Last Hand Before the Break

[user153638] • Nivel 13: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

After Cary Katz raised from the cutoff, Antonio Esfandiari raised to 400,000 from the small blind. Sam Trickett, his heads-up opponent from this event in 2012, called from the big, Katz came along, and all three of them saw a flop of {10-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

Esfandiari checked, Trickett bet 375,000, and Katz called. Esfandiari came along as well and it was still three-way action to the {8-Spades} turn. Esfandiari checked for a second time, and Trickett bet a hefty 1.25 million. Katz took his time before folding, Esfandiari called, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

Esfandiari checked for a third time, and Trickett thought long and hard before checking behind. Esfandiari tabled with {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}, and it was good as Trickett mucked.
