Tricky Trickett

Antonio Esfandiari raised to 725 and it folded all of the way around to Sam Trickett who called from the big blind. The flop was {5-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and Trickett checked. Esfandiari continued out for 1,000 and Tricket slid out a check-raise to 2,600. Esfandiari called.

The {10-Diamonds} turned and Trickett led for 3,600. Esfandiari called once again and the {A-Spades} hit the river. Trickett fired 8,600.

"Oh, tricky Trickett," said Esfandiari. "I invited you into my home...I took you to the spa..." he trailed off.

Esfandiari eventually flung out a call. Trickett rolled over {K-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a turned flush and Esfandiari flung his cards to the muck. Trickett is now up to 63,000 while Esfandiari has been crippled at about 7,000.
