A player raises UTG+1 to 18,000, Kevin Wang calls from middle position, and Mike Eskandari moves all in from the cutoff for 78,000. The UTG+1 player tanks for a while before moving all in over the top for about 300,000, and Wang tanks for a while before he calls all in for about 131,000.
Here are their cards in descending order of chip counts:
The board comes , and the pocket aces hold up for Eskandari to win the main pot and triple up in chips. For the side pot, the two pair on the board — kings and jacks — counterfeit their pairs, and the ten on the board provides kicker protection. The side pot is chopped between Wang and the third player.
Mike Eskandari – 176,000 (22 bb)
Kevin Wang – 53,000 (7 bb)
