Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

No More High Stakes Poker for Eskandani


Iconic poker television producer Mori Eskandani has been eliminated from the field. He was part of a three-way flop of {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} with Mikhail Timoshin and Sanghyon Cheong. The three players a total of roughly 210,000 chips into the pot pre-flop. Timoshin had first action on the flop and checked it to Eskandani. Eskandani weighed his options before moving all in for roughly 460,000 total. Cheong quickly called with {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}, which was incredibly bad news for Eskandani's {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}. The turn and river blanked out, {4-Hearts} and {j-Diamonds}. That meant Eskandani busted out and Cheong became the new chip leader with almost 2.6 million chips
