Sep 21, 2014

Antonio EsfandiariAntonio Esfandiari raises under the gun to 13,000, Scotty reraises from the button to 33,000, and Esfandiari thinks for a bit before he moves all in for 150,000.

Nguyen snap-calls with [JhJs], and Esfandiari turns over [QdQh]. Esfandiari needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board comes [8h5h5sKd9d], and the pocket queens hold up for Esfandiari to win the pot and double up in chips.
