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

Duhamel Looking Dangerous


For something different, Patrick Eskandar decided to limp in from the hijack position but Jonathan Duhamel wasn't going to let him through cheap as he made it 465,000 to play on the button. The blinds folded and Eskandar made the call.

The flop landed {Q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Eskandar led at the pot for 675,000. Duhamel raised it to 1.55 million and Eskander made the call as a big pot developed.

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and Eskandar checked it over to Duhamel who bet 2.375 million. Eskandar deliberated for several minutes over the decision but eventually let his hand go. Duhamel raked in a nice pot as he now finds himself with 13.2 million. Eskandar is back down to 4.4 million.
