Event 36: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Esfandiari Says Goodbye, Becomes Chip Leader

Antonio Esfandiari took the lead.

Jonathan Lane opened to 40,000 and Antonio Esfandiari re-raised to 102,000 from the big blind. Lane called and the flop came {4-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {6-Clubs}. Esfandiari bet 120,000 and Lane raised to 625,000 - enough to cover Esfandiari.

"What, a pair and a draw?" Esfandiari asked Lane. "Well ladies and gentlemen, it's been real nice playing you all." He then called and tabled {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}.

Lane tabled {8-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} and the board completed {A-Diamonds} {10-Spades} and Esfandiari went from saying his goodbyes to leaping into the chip lead.
