There was 78,000 in the pot and the flop came down , Cates simply moved all-in for 101,000 and, after some contemplation, Esfandiari asked Cates if he’d heard of the Salvation Army and then made the call.
The turn opened up the possibility of a flush for Esfandiari and he duly made it on the river to send Cates home with the bagel. Asked if he’d have taken 18 points going into the last heat he said: “It’s not a good spot. I mean I got it in as a two to one favourite and lost,” that’s poker.
