Eskandar Cracks Aces

Patrick Eskandar

Matthew Jarvis raised to 240,000 from under the gun with Patrick Eskandar calling on the button and Jonathan Duhamel coming along in the big blind.

They took a flop of {8-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Duhamel checked to Jarvis who made a continuation bet of 425,000. Eskandar moved all in over the top for 1.965 million in total to force Duhamel to fold, but Jarvis made the call.

Eskandar: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Jarvis: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}

Jarvis had the bullets but Eskandar had flopped a set to take the lead. The {J-Clubs} turn and {7-Hearts} river missed to give Eskandar a huge double up to 4.85 million with Jarvis slipping back to 5.3 million.
