Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Esposito Does it Again!

• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
John Esposito shows his excitement after winning the above mentioned hand.

First into the pot from late position, John Esposito opened to 160,000, and Ryan Lenaghan gave him action from the big blind. The two men checked through the {J-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} {9-Hearts} flop, and Lenaghan took the lead on the {J-Hearts} turn. He bet 165,000, and Esposito put both hands behind his towers. "I raise," he said with a firmness, and he committed his last 1.385 million chips to the pot. Lenaghan tanked for a good while, then made an impressive call.

Showdown
Lenaghan: {3-Spades} {3-Hearts}
Esposito: {K-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}

On seeing Lenaghan's cards, Esposito said something like, "Buddy, I got a lot of wins with this hand!" He did have a plethora of outs, and he found the {K-Clubs} on the river to secure a second double-up within just a few minutes.

This one moves Esposito all the way up to about 3.36 million, knocking Lenaghan down under 11.5 million.
