The tourney won by Esfandiari last month is now on TV featuring the final table. I watched it carefully and there were certainly mistakes made on a number of hands.
The most prevalent in my opnion was when Trickett did not push Esfandiari off the one particular hand holding top pair with a decent kicker. Trickett's failure to do this let Esfandiari catch his third nine and take the pot.
Of course it is easy to second guess, but if it was me in that spot..I would have made a bigger bet and re-raised as well on the earlier street.
