Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Schulman Shut Out

Nick Schulman

We caught up with this one on the flop, with three players still in — Eugene Katchalov (big blind), Antonio Esfandiari (hijack), and Nick Schulman (cutoff).

The board read {3-Spades}{J-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and Katchalov had just checked. Esfandiari fired a bet of 123,000, then Schulman raised to 277,000, forcing a fold from Katchalov. Esfandiari thought a moment, then called.

The turn brought the {Q-Spades} and a bet of 362,000 from Esfandiari. That sent Schulman into the tank for a full minute or so, after which he finally emerged to raise all in for about 1.1 million, and Esfandiari called.

Esfandiari: {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Schulman: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}

Two pair for Esfandiari, better than Schulman's overpair. The river came the {8-Diamonds}, and Schulman is out. Exactly 40 players remain.
