Big Call from Esfandiari

Antonio makes a good read on Remi

On a flop of {10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}, Remi Bollengier checked and allowed Antonio Esfandiari to bet 41,000. Bollengier then woke up with a check-raise to 102,000, Esfandiari called, and the dealer burned and turned the {4-Clubs}. This time Bollengier check-called a bet of 106,000 before leading out for a healthy 187,000 on the {Q-Hearts} river.

Esfandiari double checked his cards and hit the tank for several minutes before asking, "I don't think you have a flush. Do you have a flush? No, right?" Bollengier sat in silence while Esfandiari hit the tank for another five minutes or so. "What should I do Remi? I'm so confused?"

"I can't tell you. I don't know your hand," Bollengier finally said. Esfandiari spent another minute thinking it over and then tossed in a call, which prompted Bollengier to immediately send his cards to the muck. Esfandiari had to show his hand in order to collect the pot, and he tabled {9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.
