Hand #17: Phil Galfond opened from under the gun to 275,000. Antonio Esfandiari called from the small blind, and Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind to see the {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop. Esfandiari led with a bet of 380,000, and Negreanu called. Galfond folded.

The turn was the {3-Clubs}, and Esfandiari was first to act. He led for 565,000, and Negreanu called to see the {5-Spades} land on the river. Esfandiari checked, and Negreanu checked.

Esfandiari showed pocket queens, but lost to Negreanu's two pair with the {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

Hand #18: On the final hand at the feature table before dinner, action folded to Esfandiari on the button. He raised to 255,000. From the big blind, Phil Galfond called, and the flop came down {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Galfond checked, Esfandiari bet 275,000, and Galfond called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts}, and both players checked to see the {K-Hearts} come on the river. Both players checked again.

Galfond showed the {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for an ace-high flush, and Esfandiari mucked his hand.
