Greg Merson raised to 90,000 and Antonio Esfandiari three-bet to 200,000 from his immediate left. The action folded back to Merson who called, and the flop brought out {6-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}.

Merson checked to Esfandiari who bet 250,000. Merson check-raised to 625,000 and Esfandiari made the call.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and Merson tanked for a bit before betting 230,000. Esfandiari quickly called and the river was the {J-Diamonds}. Both players checked and Merson showed {A-Spades}{8-Spades}, which was no good versus Esfandiari's {A-Clubs}{9-Spades}.

Antonio Esfandiari us 6,400,000 1,520,000
