Esfandiari Eliminated As The $100K Super High Roller Bubble Boy

The double bubble has been burst here in the $100K Super High Roller, and the bubble boy is none other than Antonio Esfandiari.

It happened after "The Magician" opened for 90,000 from early position only to have David "Doc" Sands three-bet to 170,000 from the next seat over. The rest of the field cleared out, Esfandiari moved all in for right around 850,000, and Sands called.

Showdown
Sands: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Esfandiari: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

The {6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop wasn't particularly interesting, and that meant Esfandiari needed some major help. "Such a gross feeling," Esfandiari let slip when the {2-Spades} appeared on the turn. That feeling sunk in when the {2-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, the last card Esfandiari would see before taking his leave in ninth place.
