World Series of Poker Main Event -- Michael Esposito Eliminated In Seventh Place
Esposito Earns $1,257,790 For His Finish
With the blinds increasing to 250,000-500,000 with a 50,000 ante in the 2012 World Series of Poker main event, Michael Esposito was getting desperate with under 15 big blinds remaining in his stack.
The 43-year-old came back from the break determined to make some moves, and after a few all ins, he had chipped back over the 10 million mark.
On the very next hand, however, he moved all in from middle position with A J, only to find a willing customer in Greg Merson, who woke up with A K in the big blind.
The board ran out 9 7 4 6 8 and Esposito was eliminated. The Seaford, New York native picked up $1,257,790 for his seventh-place finish.
With the pot, Merson moved into the chip lead over Jesse Sylvia.
