Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Feature Table Hand #114: No Repeat for Esfandiari

SantanaBandana • Level 19: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Antonio Esfandiari is eliminated

Hand #114: Tobias Reinkemeier raised to 900,000 from the small blind Antonio Esfandiari moved all in for 5.05 million out of the big blind, and Reinkemeier called.

Reinkemeier: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Esfandiari: {a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Esfandiari's contingent was rather silent, whether it be because it is very late or their man was dominated we don't know. They didn't call for any cards as the dealer fanned {9-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, and the Magician's fate was sealed when the {j-Spades} fell on the turn.

A meaningless {5-Diamonds} completed the board, adding a little bit of salt to the wound, and Esfandiari was eliminated two places shy of the money. The inaugural ONE DROP champion will still retain the largest single prize with the over $18 million he won in 2012, but he will not make a return trip to the final table.

The final nine players will now move into the mothership and battle it out on the biggest bubble in poker.
