Experience represents a great background in what matters to the game, and having that associated with an image of a well-known and big winner pro like Antonio Esfandiari, gathered with huge strategy skills, makes a lot for his game but it wasn’t enough to beat the rising promising game of Ravi Raghavan in this event, who must have had nerves of steel on that final table.

Still a big accomplishment and nice ending of a sensationell year for the 18 mio $ man, antonio esfandiari.
2 bracelets and final tabling the same wpt event 3 years in a row is just amazing
congratulations to Ravi Raghavan to defeat such a stacked final table

so just as i predicted- antonio esfandiari failed to win the event- at one moment he had a decent chip lead over rest of the pack, but as the majority of times he has failed to keep the lead. if we take away the one famous win he had it seems that esfandiari has a problem with finishing the tourneys, still he makes it itm most of the times, so thats good for his roll
