John Esposito

Derek McMaster opened from the button, John Esposito called in the small blind and Jason Berilgen defended his big blind. The dealer spread out {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Hearts} on the flop and action checked to Esposito who pushed in a bet.

McMaster ducked and Bergilsen check-raised. Esposito moved all in over the top for 270,000 total and Berilgen called the additional 20,000.

Esposito tabled {10-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a pair of tens along with straight and flush draws. Berilgen turned over {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{4-Spades} for a pair of jacks with a straight draw.

The turn came down a {5-Clubs} and Esposito now picked up some more outs to take down the pot. A {3-Diamonds} hit the felt as a river card and failed to connect with Esposito as he was eliminated by the better high and low hand of Berilgen.
