Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

The Magician Missteps Early

Yesterday, Antonio Esfandiari was cruising the whole day, collecting chips with ease. He made a late surge, and ended the day as our chip leader. However, he is off to a rough start today, as he doubled Steve Brecher up early. We only got to the table as the dealer was counting out Brecher's chips for the double, but we did catch the following.

The board: {7-Hearts}{2-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Spades}

Esfandiari: {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Brecher: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

Brecher doubled up with his flush to 57,000, while Esfandiari drops down to 82,000, giving up the chip lead in the process.

Antonio Esfandiari us 82,000 -30,600
Steve Brecher us 57,000 19,000
