If You Play The 7-2 Game With Antonio Esfandiari You're Gonna Have A Bad Time

Screen Shot 2018-11-15 at 11.22.37 AM

The 7-2 game is a game within the game of poker where if you win a hand and show down 7-2, you collect money, in this case $500, from everyone else at the table. It makes things very, very interesting, because it makes people play 7-2 very aggressively, because usually it’s the only way you’ll win the hand. You can also frustrate your opponents into thinking you have the 7-2 when in reality you have the nuts. Lots of mind games can be played when you play the 72 game.

In the hand at play, they are playing $100/200 blinds and Esfandiari has mounds in front of him. His opponent, Ben Shimon, is a loose amateur player. He flops top pair and it goes check/check.

The turn comes another ace

Giving Shimon a full house and Esfandiari still 7 high. The only thing that would beat him is the case ace.

The river came

The jack of clubs.

Shimon checked and so Antonio knows he either needs to give up on the hand and accept defeat, or go deep into the chamber and fire one more bullet.

And that’s what he did.

Antonio moved all in, $62,900 into an $18,700 pot. And Shimon looks in pain. Just say call! Antonio is a notoriously aggressive player, he just overbet the hell out of the pot, and you have top full house! Say call!!!! Say call!!!!!!

And heeeeeeee

He picked the worst hand to bluff with the worst possible hand, and came out way ahead. Freaking Antonio. What a life.
