Bonita Flushed Away

Chris Bonita in Day 5 action.

Action folded to John Esposito on the button and he put in a raise to 55,000. The small blind got out of the way, but Chris Bonita responded by moving all in from the big blind for around 680,000. Esposito didn't have much more than that, so he thought long and hard before making the call.

Bonita: {A-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Esposito: {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

"Well, no matter what happens, I got it in good," Esposito said as both players waited for the ESPN crew to arrive. Once the cameras were in place, the dealer was given the go ahead and put out the flop: {8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

"Come on, put a club up there and end this," Esposito boisterously stated. Sure enough, the {9-Clubs} spiked on the turn to leave Bonita drawing dead. After the {J-Spades} was put out on the river, the dealer counted down the stacks to confirm that Bonita was eliminated from the tournament.
