There’s not much debate as to which pot that was “Hand of the Day” on the latest High Stakes Poker Consequence. This classification goes to a pot played between Tilly, Esfandiari and Sanchez in which all three players hit something big on the flop.

The spread started with Tilly raising to $3,000 from the button with {2-hearts}{2-Diamonds} and then get a call from Sanchez, hold {k clubs}{9 clubs} in the small blind. Esfandiari, with {j-hearts}{j-diamonds} then three-bet to $11,000 and both players called.

If {J Clubs}{9-spades}{2 clubs} came on the flop, all three caught a big piece of that board. Esfandiari bet $14,000 with top set and both opponents called to see it {10-Diamonds} at the turn.

The “Wizard” Again, this time for $43,000, before Tilly, who had the bottom set, moved all in for $115,000. That forced Sanchez and his pair to fold with a flush and a gutshot straight draw. But it didn’t make Esfandiari let go of top set, nor did it make him consider folding. He quickly made the call and they agreed to only run the river once and that was that {10 hearts}giving both players a full house.

Esfandiari’s boat was bigger and he won the $305,800 pot, one of the largest of Season 10 to date.

At times, Perkins can be a bit stingy at the poker table. The author and hedge fund manager played a sizeable pot against Esfandiari, who caught cards early in the session.

In this featured hand, Esfandiari raised to $1,000 with with {a clubs}{3-Diamonds} before his buddy Perkins made the call {K spade}{7-spades} in the small blind. The flop was {4 spades}{3 clubs}{3 hearts} and Perkins chose to lead by $1,000, convincing his opponent to trip-raise to $6,000. However, that didn’t convince the under-the-gun bettor to fold King-High.

After both players took a look at the {7-Hearts} Action checked on the turn to the preflop raiser, who bet $10,000. With top pair, Perkins called and then called another $20,000 on the {9 clubs} Flow.

Perkins also lost a $93,000 pot to Sanchez when his pocket nines failed to catch pocket queens. Two jacks appeared on the flop in a four-way pot, neither of which had trips, and it was checked through. Sanchez was able to give Perkins some value on the turn and river when he realized nobody had a jack.
