Benefield's Straight is Bigger

Josh_Cahlik • Nivel 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Erik Seidel opened with a raise to an unknown amount and found a call from David Benefield in the big blind. The flop brought {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades} and both players checked to see a turn. Fourth street was the {10-Spades} and Benefield checked once again. Seidel fired 150,000 and Benefield called.

The river was the {q-Hearts} and Benefield checked for a third time. Seidel bet 250,000 and Benefield snapped him off. Seidel tabled {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} for a flopped straight, but unfortunately was behind Benefield's {j-Clubs}{8-Spades} for a higher straight. Benefield dragged in the pot and is now sitting on 1.7 million in chips.
