Hand #109: Antonio Esfandiari Doubles Thru Vanessa Rousso
Level 30: 80,000-160,000, 15,000 ante
Antonio Esfandiari moves all in from the small blind for 2,555,000, and Vanessa Rousso thinks for more than two minutes before she calls with K8. Esfandiari shows K9, and he'll need it to hold up to stay alive.
The board comes K6223, and Rousso flops a flush draw and turns a lot of chop outs, but Esfandiari wins the pot with his nine kicker to double up in chips.
This double-up came moments before midnight, when Antonio Esfandiari's birthday will come to an end. A last-minute birthday gift from statistical variance.
Seat 1. Antonio Esfandiari - 5,155,000
Seat 2. Vanessa Rousso - 5,060,000
Seat 6. Andrew Robl - 7,340,000
