Esfandiari & Hachem Ousted

Antonio Esfandiari

Antonio Esfandiari recently fell to Vadim Pinsky, and while we didn't witness the hand, Tam Truong did and was kind enough to relate the story.

According to him, a player raised to 500, Pinsky called from the small blind, and a short-stacked Esfandiari called from the big, leaving himself just 150 behind in the process. The {q-}{j-}{7-} flop saw Pinsky check, Esfandiari bet all in, and two calls follow. The two active players then checked the {6-} turn and {2-} river. The original raiser showed {j-}{j-}{x-}{x-} for a flopped set, but it was no good as Pinsky had flopped a bigger set with {q-}{q-}{x-}{x-}. Esfandiari's hand remains a mystery as he mucked before exiting the tournament area.

Meanwhile, 2005 World Series of Poker champ Joe Hachem was eliminated from the tournament in unknown action.
