Esfandiari Makes Great Call

Antonio Esfandiari

We came to the table and saw that Antonio Esfandiari was heads up with the player who was under the gun on a flop that read {q-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Esfandiari's opponent led out for 4,400, and the Magician made the call. The turn came down the {3-Hearts}, and his opponent instantly moved all in for 11,800.

Esfandiari went deep into the tank, and ask his opponent if he would show. He immediately said "yes", and that must have tipped off Esfandiari, as a few moments later he made the call with {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} for top pair. His opponent said "you got me" and showed {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a stone cold bluff. The meaningless river was the {2-Hearts}, and just like that, the Magician made his opponent's stack disappear, and he is now sitting on 44,000.
