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

This One Could've Been Bigger


"I didn't wanna flip for the whole thing," Antonio Esfandiari said after just winning a decent pot off Richard Yong when someone asked him why the money didn't go all in pre flop.

The action went as following.

From the small blind Esfandiari raised it up to 550,000 and Yong three-bet to 1,500,000. Esfandiari called and the flop came down {Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Esfandiari check-called 1.2 million and the turn, the {5-Diamonds}, and river, the {8-Clubs}, were checked.

Yong showed {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} and lost against Esfandiari's {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}.
