Antonio Esfandiari heads the pack at LAPC

Antonio Esfandiari heads the pack at LAPC

Tuesday, 24 February 2009

Day 2 of the LA Poker Classic Main Event saw 400 players take to the tables. Erik Lindgren, Mike Matusow and Phil Hellmuth all hit the rail but Antonio Esfandiari managed to build himself an impressive stack to occupy one of the top spots.

Another big story was that of Kofi Farkye, a rookie on the tournament scene who finished Day 2 close behind the Iranian-American.

Esfandiari was unafraid to get chips in the middle – just a few hands after dragging a huge pot with top two pair, he won a 3-bet, check-raised pot without showdown after relentlessly bullying fellow big stack KJ Nam.
