Day two ended with the demise of Mike Sexton with a very "iffy" hand from Esfandiari leaving 8 players for the "TV table" on day 3. Esfandiari raised pre-flop and Sexton called as big blind. The flop came down As Js 3d and both players checked. The turn was 6d and Esfandiari bet 1.15 million. Mike Sexton raised all in and the players showed their cards. Esfandiari had 2 pairs, sixes and threes (holding 6s and 3c) and Sexton showed a pair of Jacks (holding Jd and 10d). The river was the 8c and Mike Sexton was out with a $1,109,333 win in his pocket.
Earlier in the day, Phil Ivey was knocked out by Philipp Gruissem who hit a flush on the river against Ivey's Qh Qc.
