Days: 1

Big Names Collide After the Break

Level 5 : 150-300, 50 ante

Charlie Carrel, first to act, opened to 800. Action folded to Antonio Esfandiari in the hijack, who three-bet to 2,025. Carrel called.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. Carrel checked. Esfandiari bet 1,825, and Carrel called. The turn was the {q-Hearts}. Carrel checked again. His opponent bet 1,825, and Carrel stuck around with a call. The {4-Clubs} river completed the board, and Carrel checked once more. Esfandiari moved all in.

Carrel started talking to his opponent for a few minutes, trying to get a read, but he didn't even get a response. He proceeded to call after a few minutes and tabled {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}.

Esfandiari showed {10-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and said, ''Sorry, Dad,'' to his dad, who was on the rail.
