Esfandiari & Perkins went all in on draws for a $600,000 pot at High Stakes Poker

High stakes poker esfandiari

In episode 8 of High Stakes Poker Season 10, which aired Tuesday night, Antonio Esfandiari and his good friend Bill Perkins played with drawing hands in a $606,000 pot.

While that was by far the most entertaining pot of the night, it wasn’t the only hand worth mentioning. For the fourth week in a row, the table stayed mostly the same with the above two players also in action Jennifer Tilly, Bobby Baldwin, Robert SanchezAnd Roger Sipl.

The high-stakes no-limit hold’em game on PokerGO yielded several six-figure pots and some exciting action, but nothing more than the hand that followed.

last week on High Stakes Pokerwe saw Esfandiari win an epic Three way cooler. This week he fought for another monster pot in exciting fashion.

In the hand in question, with a double straddle, Tilly called the $2,000 straddle from the button with {q-spade}{j-diamonds} before Perkins raised to $10,000 from the big blind with {10 spades}{8-spades}. Sitting in the first straddle, Sippl called with {10-Diamonds}{9-spades}as does Esfandiari in the larger straddle {a-spade}{4 spades}.

“I’m forced to call,” Tilly then said, admitting that she chose pot.

The flop ran out {2-hearts}{7-spades}{j-spade}, something for all four players. Action checked to Esfandiari with the nut flush draw, and he bet $16,000, about half the pot. Tilly called with top pair, but when Perkins raised to $50,000 with a straight flush draw, Sippl folded his gutshot straight draw.

Esfandiari, over $500,000 behind, paused for a moment before raising to $166,000. Tilly couldn’t call such a massive bet with only top pair, so she mucked her cards. But Perkins, whose stack started the hand at just over $280,000, moved all in and that “Wizard” called.

They agreed to play the turn and river twice, and the first runout came {k clubs}{7-Diamonds}followed by the {2-Diamonds}{a clubs} on the second board both go towards Esfandiari. As a result, he sent out the $606,400 pot,

In a later hand, Perkins was dealt {10 clubs}{2-hearts} and asked the table if they could pay $5,000 to get two new cards. They agreed and his new hand got even worse – {5 spades}{2 clubs}. After Esfandiari raised to $3,200 with {4-Diamonds}{3 hearts} in the dark – he hadn’t even looked at his cards – Perkins raised it to $15,200.

Esfandiari then looked at his cards, showed the four-high, and mucked them. Perkins flipped the five-high and took the pot on the last hand of the session.

In the second note of Episode 8, Baldwin raised to $2,000 with {2-Diamonds}{2 clubs}. Sanchez called with {k-diamonds}{q-hearts} as well as Perkins on the button {6-Diamonds}{5 hearts}. Sippl three-bet in the small blind to $6,000 {a-hearts}{q-spade} and only Baldwin folded.

The flop came out {8-spades}{9-spades}{8-Diamonds} and action checked to Perkins, who bet $5,000. Sippl called, Sanchez folded and die {6-spades} appeared on the turn. Sippl checked his queen-high flush draw against Perkins, who had just paired and ripped off another bet, this time for $10,000.

The turn bet didn’t force a fold and both saw it {10 hearts} on the river. Although this card didn’t improve the ace-high, Sippl moved all in for $45,000, which convinced his opponent, who had the best hand, to fold.

Sanchez raised to $2,000 on the button with {q-hearts}{3 hearts}. This action was followed by Sippl, who called from the big blind with {K spade}{q-spade} and then Esfandiari 3-bet to $10,000 with {a clubs}{k clubs} in the straddle, which didn’t convince either player to fold.

All three remaining players saw a flop of {2-hearts}{9-spades}{j-spade}, giving Sippl a monster combo draw. Esfandiari, who was insane, bet $13,000 anyway. He only got one call, of course from Sippl.

The turning point was this {7-Diamonds}, no help for either player. With $80,000 in the pot, Esfandiari bet $23,400 and was called again. After {j-diamonds} appeared on the river, Sippl checked and put the “Magician” in a difficult position. He’d already been called on the flop and turn, so he could only win at showdown if his opponent had a flush or a straight draw.

As it turned out, Sippl was going for a draw, meaning a check from Esfandiari’s ace-king was good enough to win the hand without a bet.

High Stakes Poker Season 10 returns next week at 5pm PT with Episode 9 on PokerGO.
