Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Esfandiari Busts Newey


From under the gun, Antonio Esfandiari raised to 130,000. Mikhail Smirnov made the call from the next seat and then action folded to Paul Newey in the big blind. Newey made it 350,000 to go and Esfandiari called. Smirnov also called.

The flop was {9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} and Newey tank-bet 575,000. Esfandiari called and Smirnov called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Newey moved all in for 1.095 million. Esfandiari called and Smirnov folded.

Esfandiari tabled the {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for top set. Newey held the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} for an overpair and needed an ace on the river to stay alive.

The {4-Hearts} landed on fifth street and eliminated Newey while shotting Esfandiari up towards 12 million in chips.
