The Defending Champ Doubles

[user101598] • Level 5: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Antonio Esfandiari doubles

Dan Smith led out for 150,000 on a flop of {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs} - roughly half of the pot - and Antonio Esfandiari made the call.

The turn was the {10-Hearts}, Smith checked, and Esfandiari fired out 278,000. Smith made the call.

The {8-Hearts} completed the board, Smith checked again, and the defending champion moved all in.

"Can I have a count please?" Smith asked instantly, standing from the table.

As the dealer cut down the stacks, Smith rubbed his hands together like he needed to keep them warm, then bent down to pick something up. He emerged with a pair of regular glasses, replacing his sunglasses with them, then crossed his arms.

The dealer confirmed that the amount was 942,000, and Smith made the call. Esfandiari showed {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} for a flopped set of fours, and Smith tabled {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} for top two.

"Doubled up!" Esfandiari shouted to his rail, grinning.

"Nice hand, Antonio," Smith told him.
