Mike Eskandari

Not long after the final two tables were set, Mike Eskandari was eliminated. Eskandari held the chip lead for a brief moment on Day 2 but did not gain similar traction on Day 3. Eskandari’s chips now reside in the stack of Noah Vaillancourt.

Eskandari shoved the button for 980,000 with A♣7♠ and Vaillancourt called with A♠Q. A queen on the turn locked up the hand and Eskandari earns $27,199 for his run in Event 56. Vaillancourt is playing 2,150,000 with the blinds soon to go up.
