Esposito Exits

John Esposito - 32nd Place

From under the gun, Lars Bonding raised to 255,000. Action then folded around to John Esposito in the hijack seat and he reraised all in for 1.68 million in chips. Play then moved around to Ryan Lenaghan in the small blind and he paused for a little bit. Lenaghan then made the call. Bonding folded and it was Esposito versus Lenaghan for this one.

Lenaghan held the {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} and was up against Esposito's {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}. Esposito was the player at risk in the hand and fighting for his tournament life.

The flop came down {K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and not much was there for Esposito. The turn brought the {2-Hearts} and now there was just one chance left for Esposito to hit one of the two remaining jacks in the deck.

The river card produced the {6-Diamonds} and that wasn't what Esposito needed. He failed to come from behind in this one and was eliminated in 32nd place for $242,636. Lenaghan increased to 16.17 million in chips.
