Patrick Eskandar

Hand #31: Sammy Lafleur opened the action, making it 600,000 on the button and Patrick Eskandar three-bet all in for 2,775,000. Lafleur called and when the cards went over, Eskandar was in trouble with his tournament life on the line.

Sammy Lafleur: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Patrick Eskandar: {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

The {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board brought a flush for both players but Lafleur's was ace-high, giving him the nuts. Eskandar managed to climb a few rungs on the money ladder but now has to join the rail.
