Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

David Einhorn Eliminated in 3rd Place ($4,352,000)

• Nivo 22: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante
David Einhorn - 3rd Place

Hand #69: Antonio Esfandiari had the button, and raised to 1.6 million. Sam Trickett folded from the big blind, and David Einhorn moved all in for 15.025 million from the big. Esfandiari called, tabling {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}, which dominated Einhorn's {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, and it tricked some spectators because they saw the {9-Diamonds} first. The {10-Hearts} kept Esfandiari in the lead, however. The {3-Hearts} on the turn was a brick, and so too was the {q-Spades} on the river, eliminating Einhorn in third place.

Einhorn received a rousing round of applause from his rail, which is well-deserved - he plans to donate the entire $4,352,000 he's earned to City Year, an education-focused nonprofit organization.
