Hand #56: Guy Laliberté was on the button to start this hand. From the cutoff seat, David Einhorn raised all in for 12.1 million. Everyone folded and Einhorn won the pot.

Hand #57: Phil Hellmuth started the hand with the button. Action moved to Guy Laliberté in the cutoff seat and he made it 1.2 million to go. From the small blind, Antonio Esfandiari reraised to 2.775 million. Sam Trickett took plenty of time to think about things in the big blind before he reraised to 4.3 million. Laliberté folded and then Esfandiari tanked. After two minutes or so, Esfandiari called.

The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} with just over 10 million chips in the pot between these two big stacks. Esfandiari checked to Trickett and he fired 3.2 million. Esfandiari called.

The {8-Spades} fell on the turn and Esfandiari passed the action to Trickett again. After a minute, Trickett bet 4.4 million. Esfandiari called and the pot swelled some more before heading to the river.

Shaun "Shaun the Dealer" Harris snapped the {Q-Hearts} on the river and a subtle "aaahhhh" came from the crowd as a third heart hit the felt. Esfandiari checked and Trickett checked behind after tanking for a little bit.

Trickett showed the {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a pair of eights, but Esfandiari's {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} was the better of the two hands and he raked in the pot to take the chip lead.

The {7-Hearts} turned, Hellmuth checked again, and Trickett reached for chips, tossing out 1.4 million. Hellmuth called.

The {k-Hearts} completed the board, and both players quickly checked. Hellmuth tabled {a-Spades}{10-Spades} for ace-high, and Trickett showed {8-Spades}{7-Clubs} for two pair, winning the pot.
