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

Eskandar Down Again

Pascal LeFrancois raised to 375,000 first into the pot, and Patrick Eskandar made the call to go heads-up to the flop.

The dealer spread out {Q-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {2-Hearts}, and the two men checked through to the {4-Spades} turn. Eskandar apparently wasn't going to do it for him, so LeFrancois fired out a bet of 475,000 chips. He found a call there, and another call when he bet 980,000 on the {6-Hearts} river. He tabled {2-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} for the set, and that was the winner-winner. Eskandar mucked and said, "Nice bet," as his stack has once again slid back close to the million-chip mark. We count him at 1.2 million now, while LeFrancois has joined the 20-million-chip club.
