Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em

Esfandiari Opening Up a Lead


We didn't catch the amounts, but we do know that Salvatore Bonavena preflop raised from the cutoff and then called a three-bet from Antonio Esfandiari on the button. The {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop saw Bonavena check, and then check-raise to 200,000 when Esfandiari firedout 78,000.

"The Magician" thought for about 20 seconds before announcing that he was all in, and Bonavena fidgeted in his chair, thought for a minute, and then mucked his hand.
