Huge Cooler Sends Kim Out The Door

[user20283] • Level 1: 100-200, 0 ante

We missed the action before the river but with 7,000 chips in the pot the board read {5-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Antonio Esfandiari bet 3,700 from middle position and Edward Kim raised it up to 15,000. Esfandiari proceeded to move all in and Kim went into the tank for a very long time.

A couple of minutes went by but eventually Kim made the call. He showed {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a full house but that wasn't enough against Esfandiari's {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for a rivered full house. Kim was the first player to leave the tournament but Esfandiari called him back.

"Hey Ed! I don't want to be the barrer of bad news, but you owe $200 for Lodden Thinks," Esfandiari said as Kim apologized and paid up to settle the prop bet. This was all in good spirits and Esfandiari was of course in the best mood of all.
